STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Attorneys for three people who say they were abused by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky are asking a judge not to allow the charity he founded to transfer millions of dollars to a Texas organization.
The Second Mile charity once was lauded for efforts to help at-risk youths. It's now seeking court approval to transfer many programs to Houston-based Arrow Child & Family Ministries Inc.
Sandusky was convicted last week of 45 counts in his child sex abuse trial. Prosecutors say it was through his charity he met the eight accusers who testified against him.
Attorneys for the accusers argue the court's priority should be to preserve the charity's assets so it can pay "current and future liabilities."
Sandusky maintains his innocence.
