"Jerry Sandusky founded The Second Mile in 1977 during his time as a Penn State coach. He quickly helped it become a prominent charity that helped troubled youths fight through problems and get their lives back on track...Sandusky was a major presence in the community, which allowed Second Mile to plan marquee events, including those that took place at Penn State. It was his involvement that originally allowed the charity to grow at an impressive rate...The Grand Jury report says that Sandusky met several of his victims through the organization."
"What happened inside The Second Mile has largely been unknown in the eight months since Sandusky's arrest and the monumental scandal that enveloped Penn State University ensued...The Second Mile had a nearly perfect image -- a children's charity that was wildly successful, raising millions of dollars a year and drawing the support of celebrities."
"Jerry Sandusky reluctantly resigned from his children's charity, The Second Mile, in 2009 after losing his clearance from the state to work with children...Sandusky was convicted in June on 45 counts of sexual abuse of 10 victims...Some board members thought The Second Mile should get out in front of what would inevitably become big news. Others wanted to keep quiet...The board decided to stay silent, but the decision wasn't unanimous...The Second Mile wasn't going to be the entity to make this investigation public."
"many of the victims who testified at his June trial said Sandusky used The Second Mile to continue having contact with them and even to divert others from talking to their parents...Victim 4 produced 'contracts' Sandusky wrote under Second Mile letterhead that forced the youth to spend time with his molester."
"within The Second Mile, Sandusky was given a pass on behavior such as singling out children and being alone with them...The Second Mile shared with Penn State the blue and white colors and the Nittany Lions mascot. It had use of Penn State facilities. They had many of the same donors."
"Mr. Sandusky also said the charity he worked for never restricted his access to children until he became the subject of a criminal investigation in 2008...Mr. Sandusky...confirmed details of some of the events that prosecutors have cited in charging him with 40 counts of molesting young boys, all of whom came to know Mr. Sandusky through the charity he founded, known as the Second Mile...Mr. Sandusky said he regularly gave money to the disadvantaged boys at his charity, opened bank accounts for them, and gave them gifts that had been donated to the charity. Prosecutors have said Mr. Sandusky used such gifts as a way to build a sense of trust and loyalty among boys he then repeatedly abused...He said his household in State College, Pa., over the years came to be a kind of recreation center or second home for dozens of children from the charity, a place where games were played, wrestling matches staged, sleepovers arranged, and from where trips to out-of-town sporting events were launched...the Sanduskys had adopted six children, including one from the Second Mile"
"The judge who set a reduced bail for former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky after he was arrested earlier this month was a volunteer and donor for The Second Mile, the charity organization Sandusky founded...District Judge Leslie Dutchcot, who released Sandusky on $100,000 bail - far less than the $500,000 requested by prosecutors - names The Second Mile as one of the organizations for which she volunteers, according to her attorney profile on the website of her firm, Goodall & Yurchak...In 2007 Robert Stone, the Board Chairman of Second Mile, hosted a fundraiser for Dutchcot in his home, for her campaign for District Judge, according to records of the Committee to Elect Leslie A. Dutchcot."
