(State College) -- A judge has ruled the charity for troubled youths started by convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky can transfer $200,000 and other small assets to a Texas ministry so that mentoring programs can be offered this spring.

The ruling filed allows The Second Mile to send the money, donor and program databases, and office equipment to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries.

The State College-based charity concluded last May that it could not continue operating after the scandal, but victims of abuse have filed lawsuits seeking its assets.

Judge William Morgan says that the amount is less than 5 percent of The Second Mile assets and that no objections were filed to the small transfer, which will help allow programs for at-risk youth to continue.
