Sandusky charity: Shutdown plan must happen soon
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - August 3, 2012 (WPVI) -- The charity for troubled youths started by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky says its plan to transfer programs and assets to a youth ministry needs court approval soon or it will no longer be feasible.
David Woodle, interim president and chief executive of The Second Mile, tells The Associated Press the charity can probably hold out another three or four months before it will have to shut down altogether.
The Second Mile was financially crippled by the child-sex abuse scandal involving Sandusky, its founder and onetime public face.
It's seeking court approval to transfer programs and millions of dollars in assets to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc., but lawyers for some Sandusky victims are opposed.
A new judge was assigned to the case last week.
