Judge Sets Hearing About Sandusky Charity's Future
A status conference is planned for next month in a Bellefonte courtroom as the children's charity founded by convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky seeks to shut down and transfer its assets.
Centre County court officials on Thursday posted online an order by Judge William Morgan summoning lawyers to the courthouse in Bellefonte for the September 7th proceeding.
State College-based The Second Mile is hoping to give its assets to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries Incorporated, but lawyers for some of Sandusky's victims have objected.
The 68-year-old Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted in June of sexual abuse of 10 boys over 15 years. His sentencing date hasn't been scheduled. Prosecutors say he met most - if not all - of his victims through the charity he founded in 1977.
