Post here until your hearts content on the Second Mile.

I'll start by bringing over one of my posts from another thread.

On page 57 of the Freeh report there is a letter from Paterno to Sandusky informing him that he would not be the next head coach BECAUSE of his association the Second Mile.

On page 58, Sandusky responds with a letter requesting the following as part of his retirement:

One of the documents provided from Paterno's file is a letter signed by Sandusky, dated May 28, 1999. In the letter Sandusky acknowledged that he would not be the next Penn State football head coach, and outlined options for his future. Sandusky wanted an on-going relationship between the Second Mile and Penn State, as well as continuing "visibility" at Penn State. Sandusky also wanted "active involvement in developing outreach program featuring Penn State Athletes" and sought "ways for (him) to continue to work with young people through Penn State."

In the next paragraph Sandusky requested to start a middle school youth camp. Paterno noted that "Volunteer Position Director -- Postive Action for Youth."

So there's really no evidence for what you're suggesting. Paterno did not appear to be concerned with the Second Mile. It was merely a distraction to someone who wanted the all-important job of head football coach at Penn State University.

Sandusky requested the association with Penn State football and the Second Mile because he knew the Second Mile was nothing without that assocation. Or to put it another way: his ability to seduce and groom young boys without the lure of Penn State football would be greatly diminished. And he was right. After he was no longer allowed to bring children on campus, after 2001, the rate of his crimes slowed considerably (based on the crimes he was convicted of. There may have been more we aren't aware of).

All that said, I do hope the Second Mile is thoroughly investigated. If anyone in that organization was aware of and covered up Sandusky's crimes, they need to go to prison.

Here's part of the statement released by the organization after Sandusky was indicted:

"The most recent reports we’ve read this past weekend state that Mr. Sandusky met the alleged victims through The Second Mile. To our knowledge, all the alleged incidents occurred outside of our programs and events.

Does anyone know if this is still a true statement?

Looks like The Second Mile is just as complicit as Penn State. I wonder if the public school systems that allowed Sandusky access are just as complicit as well.

Some background articles.Looks like there will be no investigation of Second Mile unless people suing them are able to dig. http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2012/07/analysis_freeh_report_sheds_ne.html
In a summary article July 14, 2012, Sara Ganim says:
Second Mile misconceptions

Thereís a false belief that more information may still come from The Second Mileís internal investigation.
It wonít.

Essentially, what Lynne Abrahamís firm found, they used to recommend the childrenís charity dissolve and transfer assets to Texas-based charity Arrow Ministries.

No internal report was completed and no public reflection about whether policies were violated will be released publicly. When pressed on the issue, CEO David Woodle said only that the internal reportís decision to continue programs elsewhere was a positive reflection on the charity.
(Article originally posted by JJ.)
Who is Lynne Abraham?
http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/7233159/penn-state-nittany-lions-scandal-president-second-mile-resigns
An ESPN report November 15, 2011, announces the resignation of CEO Raykovitz. It also announces that Courtney resigned the week before and Abraham is in as SM general counsel. The report says:
The Second Mile also announced a new general counsel on Monday. Lynne Abraham is replacing Wendell Courtney, who resigned last week.
Abraham served as the top prosecutor in Philadelphia for nearly two decades, during which she was known for her no-nonsense approach. The city's first female district attorney, she earned the lasting nickname "one tough cookie" from former Mayor Frank Rizzo. She decided not to run again in 2009 and became a partner at the Philadelphia office of the Archer & Greiner law firm in early 2010.
The Second Mile board also said that it would conduct an internal investigation to assess policies and make recommendations regarding future operations. They hope to have those findings by the end of December.

So Abrahams hired her own firm to investigate.
http://www.pulitzer.org/files/2012/local_reporting/local06.pdf
The Patriot News Second ile Exec Raised Concern November 15, 2011

In response, the charityís board of directors ó the ones sticking with the organization ó hired former Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham to conduct an internal investigation.
Abraham will be in charge of finding out how much employees knew and how much was shared about the sexual assaults that have been alleged in a 23-page grand jury presentment, interim CEO David Woodle saidÖ.
When asked if he had ever heard allegations against Sandusky before 2008, Woodle, 56, said the full history will be detailed in Abrahamís investigationÖ.
While The Second Mile will be ďtransparentĒ with what it learns and the future of the charity, Woodle said he thought it is unlikely the charity will release a report of Abrahamís findings.

http://www.thesecondmile.org/welcome.php
Second Milesí websiteHome page isa June 25, 2012 statement announcing its plans to dispose of assets, transfer programs and dissolve, saying:
Under this proposal, approximately $2 million in current cash assets will be transferred to Houston-based Arrow to fund programs in Pennsylvania for about one and half to two years, Woodle said. Additionally, an on-going program Endowment and some program related non-cash assets will be transferred. On May 25, attorneys for The Second Mile submitted a petition in the Court of Common Pleas of Centre County, Orphans' Court Division, outlining the proposed transfer of programs and dissolution of The Second Mile. Court approval could take several months.
After this transfer of assets and programs, The Second Mile will continue as a legal entity and will continue to cooperate fully with any investigations. In addition, The Second Mile is now in the process of selling property. After that sale is completed, The Second Mile will prepare a Petition to the Court proposing a final disposition of the remaining assets, Woodle said.

WENDY J. MURPHY: What did Second Mile know and when did it know it?
Nov 17, 2011 http://www.patriotledger.com/mobile/x1821248941/WENDY-J-MURPHY-What-did-Second-Mile-know-and-when-did-it-know-it?zc_p=0

Second Mile also knew about Sanduskyís 2002 alleged anal rape of a child on Penn State's campus because the Grand Jury report states that Athletic Director Tim Curley told the chief executive of Second Mile, Jack Raykovitz, about the incident. Raykovitz, who headed up Second Mile for 28 years until his resignation last week, said he was aware but unconcerned because Penn State had investigated the matter and found "no corroboration" for the allegation.
Aside from the fact that "corroboration" of a child abuse allegation is never required as a matter of law, and that the word of a child, or, as was the case in the 2002 incident, the word of eyewitness Mike McQueary, is always sufficient to sustain a charge, it is extraordinary and offensive in the extreme that Second Mile would apply a corroboration requirement to its internal policies as a shield to inhibit their effective response to a report of extremely serious child sexual abuse.

Any organization that purports to be dedicated to helping children at risk would never require corroboration as a prerequisite to taking action to protect children from harm given that child sex abuse rarely produces corroboration because of its secretive nature and because of how easy it is to manipulate a child into compliance and secrecy.

Second Mile escaping invetigation?
http://www.altoonamirror.com/page/content.detail/id/563116/Second-Mile-needs-action.html?nav=742
The State College-based charity was financially crippled by the child sex-abuse scandal involving its founder and onetime public face. After a six-month internal review, The Second Mile concluded in May that it could not continue, and asked a court for permission to transfer programs and millions of dollars in assets to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc.

But the plan has stalled amid procedural delays and opposition from lawyers for Sandusky's victims. A new judge from out of the area was assigned to the case last week....

The charity hired former Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham to conduct an internal investigation. It ended in May without having produced a report.

Woodle said Friday that Abraham's review was never meant to uncover potential wrongdoing by Second Mile officials - but to help the charity determine whether it could save itself. He pointed to a Nov. 14 statement on The Second Mile's website that said Abraham's law firm would "conduct an internal investigation to assess our internal policies, procedures and processes; and make recommendations regarding the organization's future operations."

Yet Abraham herself, speaking to reporters that same day, hinted the review would be far more investigatory in nature. "We need to find out how deep this went, who knew about it, when did they find out about it and what was done or not done," she told a news conference.

And a week later, The Second Mile released a statement that said the charity was "doing everything in our power to investigate and understand what happened."

Woodle acknowledged the confusion but said Friday, "We don't have $7 million to do a Freeh report, to be honest with you. We're not trying to hide something. This thing was always about, what's the future?"

http://www.statecollege.com/news/local-news/warren-and-forest-county-senior-judge-appointed-to-hear-second-mile-petition-1102984/
Senior Judge William Morgan will rule on The Second Mile's petition to transfer nearly $2 million in assets to a Houston-based charity, then cease to exist...

On June 26, attorneys representing Victims 3, 5 and 7 filed documents in Centre County to block The Second Mile's asset transfer.

A fourth man, identified in court documents as 'John Doe' is also filing to block the transfer. 'John Doe' is a Philadelphia man who, while not a part of the original grand jury presentment, has filed a civil suit in Philadelphia against Sandusky, according to court documents. At least three civil suits have been filed against the university.

According to court documents, transferring $2 million would constitute 40 percent of The Second Mile's holdings and victims' attorneys want The Second Mile prioritize paying off the liabilities incurred from the Sandusky trial, which would be hampered by a transfer of funds.

Some interesting people and businesses are mentioned in the Second Mile's 2010 Annual Report. (I wonder why I can't find the 2011 report anywhere!)

http://www.thesecondmile.org/pdf/AnnualReport2010.pdf

There is quite a bit of irony in the title and opening line:

"A Year Like No Other -
In this column last year, we wrote that 'we anticipate that 2010 will continue to be challenging' and, indeed, it was - challenging like never before in our history." ... I wonder what they would say about 2011??? Maybe: "If we thought 2009 was a year like no other...and if we thought 2010 would continue to be challenging - the year 2011 was from another galaxy altogether."

Of particular interest: State Farm, a donor to the Second Mile, just dropped its sponsorship of Penn State because of the scandal... Shaner Hotel Group, which manages Toftrees, where Sandusky enjoyed bringing some of his victims...

Thank you! I hope everyone reads this full report of the 98 investigation.

New info of note to me: even Seasock told Scheffler "you can't walk away from the investigation'....where did that idea come from? did he know it was being suppressed? and we know they proceeded to do just that...case closed...WHY??

Seasock did not review, or did not see, Chambers' report...why not?? The investigator really grilled Seasock about what he knew compared to Chambers and himself and he did not have the full facts at all...so why was his advice accepted to close the case??

Why was the opinion of Seasock taken over Chambers' report? Was it more convenient to hear that he could not find JS to be a pedophile at age 50+? For whom and who influenced the case to be closed?

The report of change in demeanor of Sandusky when the mother questioned him...he came all excited to pick the boy up but became very quiet and non-responsive when she questioned him and told him not to call anymore...very revealing....

The mother was worried that JS knew which sliding doors were hers at the back of the apt....she wondered how he could tell the difference from other apts? Had he been watching the apt??

JS only called the son, not the daughter....

A lot of info here that tells me this case should not have been closed by DPW even if no charges, and the PSU staff should definitely have followed up with JS's behaviors...I don't care if they were not given the full report...Schultz knew enough about it to bring it to the rest of staff's attention....they could and should have asked for a copy if they really wanted to know what he was doing with children in the workplace facilities and they should have followed up...IMO

But nope, it was conveniently filed under 'admin info', case closed, we don't know nuthin' so we don't have to do nuthin', and quietly went the way of the wind....until it came back to howl thru PSU again...

Jerry Sandusky case review being done to see if the state should have notified his charity in 2008

http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2012/08/jerry_sandusky_case_review_bei.html

The director of Clinton County Children and Youth Services says he has asked the state Department of Welfare to perform a review of how his office handled the Jerry Sandusky case as it relates to Victim One.

Gerald Rosamilia made the request after being questioned by a Patriot-News reporter about why no safety plan was put into place after Victim One -- the Clinton County teen whose allegations eventually led to Sandusky being charged with abusing 10 boys -- first came forward.

State law says that if anyone associated with a child care agency is accused, the agency must be notified and a written safety plan enacted.........

State law says that if anyone associated with a child care agency is accused, the agency must be notified and a written safety plan enacted.........

This is a great start, but questions need to be asked about why DPW itself, or Centre County C&Y, didn't notify the Second Mile in 1998, as we know by law they were obligated to do. By 2008, the ball was already rolling, and Sandusky's free reign with vulnerable children was almost to an end.

We have heard about the FBI and US Postal Service investigations, we know Curley and Schultz are having their day in court, but things have been too quiet on the Second Mile and DPW fronts.

IF a safety plan had been enacted in 98, would any extra attention have unearthed more signs of trouble; more boys with uncomfortable experiences where a trained psychologist could have put two and two together?

Or would it have ended up like the incident reported in Sara G's article yesterday, where Katherine Genovese, the well-paid 2nd in command at the Second Mile, reportedly told Rosamilia from Clinton County C&Y "We've had to tell him to back off certain kids before" (which a source close to Genovese has denied)? After all, if Sandusky was removed from the charity and the fundraising slowed, Dr Raykovitz and his wife may have faced a loss in their personal income.

Seascock's role is an interesting character. He did consultant work for Penn State from 2000 to 2006. Freeh concluded that his employment had nothing to do with the 98 investigation. What's funny is that the JoePa apologists take that as gospel while elsewhere accusing Freeh of doctoring emails. Personally, I would really like know to what exactly he did for the university and reach my own conclusion.

"The Second Mile, the state attorney general's office and lawyers for four of Sandusky's victims are listed on an agreement filed Monday in Centre County Orphans' Court. It requires court approval"

Things certainly seem to be in flux all over Sanduskyland. Maybe there are new charges coing up.
Second Mile is doing the first reasonable hing it has done since Abrahams took over, IMO. I wonder if recommending transferring thier program and its $ to Texas was something she thought up as a substitute for looking hard at Second Mile.

Self-described 'child prostitute' connects Jerry Sandusky to Poly Prep sex abuse scandal and coach Phil Foglietta
Greg Bucceroni sends off email detailing explosive allegations that late Poly Prep football coach, whom he met at fund-raiser for Sandusky's Second Mile charity, was involved in child sex ring.

In the email to Poly Prep, Bucceroni said he was "a child prostitute" and was associated with a pedophile ring that included Sandusky, Foglietta, now-deceased Philadelphia businessman Ed Savitz and former Wharton School of Business professor Lawrence Scott Ward, who is serving a lengthy prison sentence for trafficking in child porn and smuggling photos and videos of himself having sex with a teenage Brazilian boy.

"(Between) 1977-1980 I was a child prostitute associated with a tri-state (NYC-NJ-PA) pedophile ring. (During the) summer of 1979 I was brought to the State College area by Ed Savitz for the purpose of child prostitution with Jerry Sandusky at a Second Mile fundraiser," Bucceroni wrote in the email. "Due to time constraints, Sandusky became unavailable and I was introduced to Phil Foglietta by Ed Savitz & Jerry Sandusky.

In the email to Poly Prep, Bucceroni said he was "a child prostitute" and was associated with a pedophile ring that included Sandusky, Foglietta, now-deceased Philadelphia businessman Ed Savitz and former Wharton School of Business professor Lawrence Scott Ward, who is serving a lengthy prison sentence for trafficking in child porn and smuggling photos and videos of himself having sex with a teenage Brazilian boy.

"(Between) 1977-1980 I was a child prostitute associated with a tri-state (NYC-NJ-PA) pedophile ring. (During the) summer of 1979 I was brought to the State College area by Ed Savitz for the purpose of child prostitution with Jerry Sandusky at a Second Mile fundraiser," Bucceroni wrote in the email. "Due to time constraints, Sandusky became unavailable and I was introduced to Phil Foglietta by Ed Savitz & Jerry Sandusky.

Really disturbing. Proves that Sandusky has been doing this for a long time, probably as early as teen or tween.

I'm still very skeptical of Bucceroni's story. Chances are very good that Sandusky began abusing boys prior to 1998, but this gentleman's story keeps changing, now adding this Poly Prep coach to his story.

In the early stages of his tale, he didn't include Sandusky, even after the allegations came out. I am taking his version of things with a huge grain of salt.

He keeps adding people whom are deceased. It might be more believable if he also had information about people still alive and able to refute or confirm his accusations.

Centre County document site also has info on the Second Mile case:

http://www.co.centre.pa.us/media/secondmile.asp

The last order dated 9/4/12 is about the disbursement of assets being stayed until all claims by victims of Sandusky are filed and while they are pending. This can be lifted only by the court.

This could be why TSM has abandoned its internal review:

The Second Mile charity, which Sandusky created and through which he met many of his victims, abandoned its internal review but has since said it is cooperating with requests for documents and interviews for federal investigators.ź

They probably don't want to pay for the investigation that ends up burying them, as PSU did with the Freeh Report. Either that, or the initial findings were so damaging they pulled the plug before it could get out.

We can only hope this makes Rakovich (sp) and his wife shake in their boots a bit! Somebody needs to get to the bottom of what they knew about what Sandusky was doing and if they were accomplices in allowing his grooming and abuse of the very children they were responsible for...How could they not know when he was counselor for the kids and she was in charge of funding his trips, conferences, etc.? Some people can be just deliberately blind when it is to their own advantage and they were making fantastic money off this organization....

Sandusky's charity seeks permission to sell Pa. HQ

http://www.ldnews.com/state/ci_22749621/sandusky-founded-charity-seeks-ok-sell-hq

STATE COLLEGE, Pa.óA children's charity founded by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky wants to sell its headquarters. .........

Judge William Morgan on Friday scheduled a March 28 hearing on a request by The Second Mile's board of directors to sell the two-story building on a main thoroughfare in State College for $650,000. ...............

Lawyers for The Second Mile, in their court filing, said the building sale proceeds would pay for victims' claims, programs, insurance and legal fees. They said the charity can operate from rental facilities in Bellefonte, several miles away. .............

The filing said The Second Mile was given the property as a gift, for $1, in 1999 by its previous owner. An appraisal in late 2011 put the value at about $560,000.

A Pennsylvania court agrees to allow TSM to transfer $200,000 in assets (supposedly less than 5% of TSM's total assets) to Arrow Ministries of Texas:

I should no longer be surprised when interconnections between people and/ or groups involved in this tragedy are found. But I am taken aback by yet another one. In 7/2011, it was announced that Katherine Genovese, wife of 2nd Mile CEO Jack Raykowitz, was elected to the PSU Alumni Council. I wonder if she can be impeached....

These things, at least at time, tended to go to people active in alumni chapters. I don't think this is too unusual, but it is more of Central Pennsylvania Gothic horror story that we all are living. I've described it as, "Interconnections between individuals and institutions that looks metaphorically as incestuous as the Habsburg family tree."

I looked at the county demographics and at least 55% of the adult population of Centre County either:

1. Goes to PSU (about 44,000).

2. Is employed by PSU (about 23,000).

3. Is an alumni of PSU, by the Alumni Association's definition (about 18,000, but I'm figuring about 2/3 are employed there).

That does not include:

A. Retirees that are not alumni.

B. The children, siblings, spouses, or parents of 1, 2, and 3.

C. People who work in businesses that primarily serve PSU or 1, 2, and 3.

Dated but a good summary of the 2nd Mile involvement in JS's cases; checked and this has not been posted before in this thread:

Let's Not Forget The Second Mile, The Other Big Organization That Did Nothing To Stop Jerry Sandusky

Raykovitz then asked Heimóa local real estate investor and someone who isn't shy about his loyalty to Penn State, the Paterno family and many of the key players in this scandalóif he should relay this to the full board.

"And I said no," Heim said.

"For five years, I worked out at the football facility, several times a week, and saw Jerry showering with children," he said. "I said I don't think it's relevant. It happens every day at the YMCA. I remember the conversation specifically because it seemed like a nonstarter because of what Penn State said went on."

On that advice, Raykovitz didn't tell the board. He did have a talk with Sandusky, and told him to be more careful.

He told him to be more careful. Jack Raykovitz is a licensed psychologist.

According to Ganim, The Second Mile took no action against Sandusky until November 2008, when a 15-year-old boy in Clinton County accused him of inappropriate touching.
