PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A charity founded by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is calling off an internal investigation in the wake of his child sex abuse scandal.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Thursday (http://bit.ly/QkPP4K ) the chief executive of the Second Mile, David Woodle, says the organization is dropping plans for the probe into what past leaders knew and when. Woodle says the organization is "in a different situation now" because it's "getting ready to go out of business."
The Second Mile wants to turn over its assets to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc. Lawyers for some people who say Sandusky abused them are opposed.
Woodle says the charity will continue to cooperate with all external investigations.
Sandusky was convicted of 45 criminal counts. He has maintained his innocence and awaits sentencing.
