The New York Times has reported that one of the men who was allegedly victimized by  former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is seeking an injunction against Sandusky’s charity foundation, the Second Mile, to prevent the charity from transferring or divesting its assets. Court papers said the victim and others are planning to file lawsuits against the charity, which reported assets of more than $9 million in 2010.

According to the court papers, attorneys for at least 11 alleged victims will probably file civil claims against the Second Mile, and that officials of the charity are negligent for failing to report what they knew of earlier sexual abuse accusations against Sandusky over the course of several years. The New York Times reports that Grand Jury testimony indicated that the Second Mile learned of the concerns regarding Sandusky and sexually abusive contact with boys, including occasions when he showered with them, nearly ten years ago. <!–more–>

An attorney for Victim Four said that they “felt it was necessary to take this action after learning the organization was considering transferring its programs and not continuing its operations.” He also said that he and other attorneys “believe it is in the best interest of our clients, as well as the other victims, to ensure that the organization is being financially responsible.”

The injunction requests that assets of the charity “not be dissipated, encumbered or in any way obligated or disturbed in any form and should be available to victims of sexual abuse.”
