Some Second Mile Assets to Be Transferred to Arrow Charity

April 23 (Bloomberg) -- Some assets from the Second Mile, the charity founded by convicted child molester and former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, will be transferred to Arrow Child & Family Ministries.

Judge William F. Morgan in Warren, Pennsylvania, in an April 17 order, approved a request to transfer $200,000, program databases, office equipment and two vans, constituting less than 5 percent of the total assets of the Second Mile, to the Houston-based nonprofit group that will continue the programs for at-risk children.

“I know this has been a very difficult year for all involved with The Second Mile and I applaud The Second Mile board, donors and staff who worked so hard to ensure these meaningful programs are preserved while always being mindful of the victims of Jerry Sandusky,” Mark Tennant, the founder of Arrow, said in an e-mailed statement.

Sandusky, 69, was found guilty in June of 45 counts of abusing boys over a 15-year period. He was sentenced to at least 30 years in prison and is serving time in a maximum-security facility in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. Sandusky, a defensive assistant football coach under the late Joe Paterno, formed the charity in 1977.
