Sandusky charity to shut down, transfer programs
Cash-strapped Sandusky charity seeks approval to close, transfer assets to Texas ministry
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' The charity for troubled youths started by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky more than three decades ago is seeking court approval to shut down.

The Second Mile says it has been financially crippled by the child-sex abuse scandal involving its founder and onetime public face and has no other option but to close.

The charity is asking a judge to allow it to transfer programs and millions of dollars in assets to a Texas-based youth ministry that serves abused and neglected children.



Prosecutors say Sandusky found his victims through The Second Mile. He has pleaded innocent to more than 50 counts of sexual abuse involving 10 alleged victims. He awaits a June trial.
