"One alleged victim on Wednesday sought an injunction to stop the Second Mile charity from ﻿﻿dissipating its assets, NBC News confirmed. In a filing in Pennsylvania state court, the alleged victim said he and others intended to sue Second Mile for negligence and failing to report known sexual abuse of children, and wanted to stop the charity's assets from disappearing. Sandusky founded Second Mile."
Certainly Second mile can disperse their funds ............to an escrow account.
Where are all the brilliant minds who were supposedly on the board at Second Mile? They have abandoned ship. Someone is releasing fairy tales from that organization now. They WISH they could disperse their funds to other charitable organizations, but it isn't going to happen.
Hurray for the feds! If any of Sandusky's rape victims that were taken across the state line asked to send them home, he can also be charged with kidnapping. (30 years in prison).http://openchannel.msnbc.msn.com/_n...case-feds-consider-launching-criminal-inquiry
A senior law enforcement source tells NBC News that federal prosecutors and FBI agents in Pennsylvania are now “looking hard” at whether to open up their own investigation because of allegations that former football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky crossed state lines to commit child abuse.
One of the Pennsylvania state charges against Sandusky alleges that he flew one boy – identified as Victim Number Four – to the Outback Bowl in Tampa in 1998 and then again to the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio in 1999. ..........
The feds are also trying to determine whether Sandusky used the Internet to communicate or even recruit his victims—also grounds for the FBI to become involved. And a New York-based charity, the Fresh Air Fund, confirmed this week that it sent five children to live with Sandusky in the 1970s and one in the mid-1990s.
“It would be inconceivable that we couldn’t find grounds” to make this a federal case, the official said.
........Beyond supporting an ongoing inquiry by the Department of Education into the actions of Penn State officials, Smith added: "I can't comment about other specific areas of federal inquiry." .............
The FBI is also making its resources – including its crime lab and behavior analysis unit – available to investigators, a state police spokesman said.

The "ban" was "unenforceable" which I still DO NOT understand that excuse. I am waiting patiently for someone with PS (or any legal entity) to explain why that 'ban" was NOT enforceable :waitasec:.
Hurray for the feds! If any of Sandusky's rape victims that were taken across the state line asked to send them home, he can also be charged with kidnapping. (30 years in prison).
The Mann Act
Over the years, the Supreme Court has repeatedly held that prosecution under the Mann Act was constitutional. The act has never been repealed, but it has been substantially amended in recent years. In 1978, Congress updated the definition of "transportation" in the act and added protection for minors of either sex against sexual exploitation.
A 1986 amendment further protected minors and replaced "debauchery" and "any other immoral purpose" with "any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense." That allowed the government to get out of the business of "legislating morality" while retaining the essence of the Mann Act as a weapon in the fight against human trafficking.
The story said she was told on Wednesday she couldn't use the facilities. A commentator pointed out the pool wasn't scheduled to be open today. Considering the university official doesn't know anything about this, what are the chances it was just a miscommunication?
Keep in mind with the felony counts, they are often for the same incident. For example, if Mr. Sandusky is found guilty of a 1st degree felony in one incident, he won't face the 3rd degree felony.
In the 1998 incidents, he's facing four felony counts of unlawful contact with a minor, 3 1st and 1 3rd degree. He possibly could be convicted on just one of them, and be acquitted on the other three.
Also, it is fairly common for sentences to run concurrently. So, let's say he's just convicted on the 3rd degree felony in the 1998 incident, along with one count each of the misdemeanors corruption of minors and one of endangering the welfare of children. He could be sentenced to 5 years and be out in 3.
I fully expect some of the charges to be dismissed, or getting a not guilty verdict on them.
So Sad, too Bad...................... A source close to the Paterno family says Sue Paterno was told to leave a Penn State campus pool where she normally works out.
No reason was given, the source told The Patriot-News, and when reached by email, university spokesman Bill Mahon said, "I have heard nobody discuss this."
Sue Paterno is the wife of legendary former head football coach Joe Paterno, who was fired after allegations of child sexual abuse were filed against his former assistant Jerry Sandusky. http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2011/11/sue_paterno_told_she_cant_use.html
Truth be told, she and Joe Pa probably bought that campus pool and exercise facility for the university. (No, if this story is true, she shouldn't be using it now even if she and her husband donated it.)
Joe Pa has lent his name to multiple campaigns that raised $1.37 billion for the Penn State.
In 1984, Joe and his wife established the Paterno Libraries Endowment, which now has $4 million in the bank. Joe Pa and his wife personally gave $250,000 of their own money to that campaign. Later, Joe Pa and his wife co-chaired a library expansion campaign which raised another $14 million.
In 1998, Joe Pa and his wife gave $3.5 million to Penn State to endow faculty positions and scholarships and to support two building projects.
In 2009, Joe Pa and his wife donated $1 million to help expand Mount Nittany Medical Center (a 260 bed acute care public hospital which is the only hospital in that city).
Joe Pa and his wife gave $250,000 to build the Penn State All-Sports Museum.
Joe Pa and his wife recently donated $1 million for a chapel on Penn State campus.
All three pools (outdoor, Natatorium, and White Building) were closed today. The Penn State pool schedules are posted on this page or the previous page. The story is fake and malicious.I think the story is suspect as well.
That woman sets foot on campus and isn't immediately followed and swarmed by reporters? Forget swimming, if she was seen headed to campus the press would think it was somehow related to the case, like a meeting or something.
If they wanted her off of the campus, I'm sure they could have advised her of this by phone. They would want their campus security to be aware as well. I could see them wanting her off of campus just for security reasons, but I doubt that it would happen in this manner.
If this turns out to be even partly true, it pizzes me off to think that a University giving an office, parking pass, and unfettered access to a child rapist would have the unmitigated gall to deny access for an innocent, elderly lady to a pool she probably paid for anyway. :furious:
A person close to former Penn State coach Joe Paterno's family has told The Associated Press his wife was turned away from a campus pool.

"The allegations are ridiculous and unfounded. Jerry has absolutely denied any inappropriate contact with his grandkids," Amendola told ABC News.
This stood out to me for some reason.
I think it is more obscene that so many others with wealth give absolutely nothing to anyone.My God, I think it's obscene that those people/Paternos had that much money to give.
