September Status Conference Set for The Second Mile's Petition
Judge William Morgan has ordered a Sept. 7 status conference regarding The Second Mile's petition to transfer nearly $2 million in assets and subsequently close for good.
The status conference will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sept. 7 on the third floor of the Centre County Courthouse Annex.
This marks the first court date for The Second Mile since filing its petition on May 25 to transfer its assets to the Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries, which has operations in Pennsylvania and was founded by a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.
Most recently, the charity called off its internal investigation, claiming that it is no longer necessary as The Second Mile has plans to close. The investigation was launched to discover if there was any oversight that may have caused the charity's founder, Jerry Sandusky, to serially molest boys for decades that he met through The Second Mile.
Sandusky, 68, awaits sentencing pending the fulfillment of all necessary psychological evaluations. On June 22, he was convicted on 45 of 48 counts of abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period.
