Sandusky charity seeks to delay transition plan

STATE COLLEGE - The charity for troubled youths started by Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach convicted of sexual abuse, wants to postpone its plan to transfer programs and assets to a youth ministry.

David Woodle, interim president and CEO of The Second Mile, tells The Associated Press the charity agreed to ask for a postponement in response to opposition from some of Jerry Sandusky's victims.

Woodle said Monday that The Second Mile, the state attorney general's office and victims' lawyers are filing a joint petition in Centre County Orphans' Court.

The charity was financially crippled by the child-sex abuse scandal involving Sandusky, its founder and onetime public face.

It had sought court approval to shift programs and millions of dollars in assets to Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc.
