An insurance company filed a civil complaint in U.S. Middle District Court here Friday arguing that it should not have to pay legal expenses or claims connected to the alleged misconduct of Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach facing numerous child molestation charges.
The Federal Insurance Co. claims in the document that it should not have to cover any civil fees incurred by the Second Mile Foundation related to Sandusky.
The Second Mile was founded by Sandusky in 1977 and was covered by the insurer, which claims the courts have found that an individual who sexually abuses a minor should not expect his insurer to cover his misconduct.
Sandusky is charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over more than a decade, and faces 40 counts that he has denied in court.
He is awaiting trial in Centre County after waiving a preliminary hearing earlier this month and remains free on bail for charges that include aggravated indecent assault.
