STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – A judge has ruled that the Pennsylvania charity for troubled youths started by convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky can transfer $200,000 and other small assets to a Texas ministry, which will assume operations of some programs.
Arrow Child & Family Ministries of Houston says in a release Tuesday that it will assume operations May 1 of some programs that were run by The Second Mile.
A court ruling filed on Monday also allows The Second Mile to send donor and program databases to Arrow. The State College-based charity concluded last May that it could not continue operating after the Sandusky scandal.
Judge William Morgan’s ruling noted that $200,000 is less than 5 percent of The Second Mile assets and that no objections were filed to the small transfer.
Sandusky is currently serving 30 to 60 years in prison after he was convicted of 45 counts of sexual abuse.
