Judge OKs Closing of Sandusky’s Scandal-Plagued Second Mile Charity
The scandal surrounding convicted child sexual abuser Jerry Sandusky and the charity he founded, The Second Mile, began in late 2011 when allegations first came to light. Shortly thereafter, in 2012, operations at The Second Mile ceased. The key remaining questions: would there be a successor nonprofit, and would there be any assets left to transfer after claims by Sandusky's victims were settled?
Earlier this month, Senior Judge William Morgan approved the dissolution of The Second Mile. Another nonprofit, Arrow Child and Family Ministries, had been awarded some of The Second Mile’s assets over the past three years. The judge awarded the remaining assets, approximately $750,000, to the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office.
