Charity asks to transfer cash

STATE COLLEGE (AP) – The Pennsylvania charity for troubled youths started by convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky is seeking permission to transfer money to a Texas ministry so that mentoring programs can be offered this spring.

The Second Mile needs a judge’s approval to transfer $200,000 to Arrow Child & Family Ministries.

The charity was financially crippled by the sex scandal involving Sandusky who was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.

Its plans to shift programs and millions of dollars in assets to Arrow has been on hold until the resolution of any damage claims filed by lawyers for Sandusky’s victims.

The Second Mile said Friday that a limited cash transfer will allow Arrow to run three Second Mile programs this spring while preserving the ability of the charity to pay damages.
