Jerry Sandusky's Charity Now Refusing Contributions

Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General(HARRISBURG, Pa.) -- Since former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was charged earlier this month with 40 counts of molesting at least eight boys over a 15-year period, the charity he co-founded has come under heavy scrutiny, especially since reports have said the former assistant football coach met many of his victims through it.

With hopes of staying a viable charity on the ropes, The Second Mile is asking that contributions now be made to the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.

That doesn't mean at-risk children will be totally abandoned -- The Second Mile will continue its programs through the end of the month while its board decides whether to restructure the charity or just end operations.

Meanwhile, attorneys for the alleged victims are trying to keep The Second Mile from unloading its assets in the event they come after the charity with expected lawsuits seeking damages.
