    A Philadelphia man who claims to have been paid to have sex with former Poly Prep football coach Phil Foglietta in 1979 as part of an alleged pedophile ring that included Jerry Sandusky sent an email to several Poly Prep officials on Monday - including current headmaster David Harman - detailing the explosive allegation. Greg Bucceroni, 48, also sent the email to Kevin Mulhearn, the Orangeburg, N.Y., attorney who represents 12 men who sued the school, alleging Poly Prep officials knew that Foglietta was a sexual predator but covered it up for decades in order to protect the elite institution's...

    The Patriot-News reported the US attorney requested info on Sandusky and his charity, "The Second Mile."

    Former Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno had close business ties with board members of The Second Mile, the charity that his assistant, accused child molester Jerry Sandusky, allegedly used to recruit his victims, The Daily has learned. Around the same time a graduate assistant allegedly approached Paterno in 2002 to say that he had witnessed Sandusky raping a boy in the locker room showers, Paterno and three fellow investors, including longtime Second Mile board chairman Robert Poole, had just secured financing to build a $125 million luxury retirement community, according to public records. Paterno also was partners with...

  • Second Mile chairman gave money to judge who arraigned Sandusky

    11/18/2011 11:28:20 AM PST · by Colofornian · 57 replies
    Robert Poole, chairman of the state board of directors for The Second Mile, contributed about $2,400 to the campaign of Magisterial District Judge Leslie Dutchcot in 2007, according to Dutchcot’s campaign finance reports. Dutchcot arraigned Jerry Sandusky and set the $100,000 unsecured bail, after the Attorney General’s Office asked for a higher, cash bail and electronic monitoring. Criticism has arisen that Dutchcot had a conflict of interest with The Second Mile, as a volunteer and donor for the organization Dutchcot. She has not commented on that issue, saying previously that a judge is not allowed to comment on pending cases....

    A critical break in the investigation of Jerry Sandusky came via a posting on the Internet: a random mention that a Penn State football coach, years before, might have seen something ugly, but kept silent. Investigators with the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office had by 2010 already come to the conclusion that Sandusky, the longtime defensive coordinator for Joe Paterno’s Nittany Lions, was a serial molester, according to two people with knowledge of the case. But what had started with a complaint of sexual assault from a high school freshman had grown to include another matter altogether: whether Penn State had...

    Second Mile Staffers Quit Over Penn State Sex Abuse ScandalBy COLLEEN CURRY Nov. 17, 2011 The outrage over the Penn State sex abuse scandal has spilled over into anger at the management of the Second Mile charity, prompting an exodus of some furious board members and volunteers. The Second Mile, founded by accused child molester Jerry Sandusky, refused to say how many of its board members have resigned, although the group's former CEO Jack Raykowitz was forced to resign last week. The anger has rippled out from its headquarters in State College. At least three members of the Second Mile's...

    The vice chairman of the Second Mile, the charity founded by an assistant Penn State football coach who faces child sexual abuse charges, said Tuesday that he couldn't predict whether the organization would remain viable beyond December. The Second Mile, of State College, Pa., has about 20 employees and had revenue of $2.2 million last year. It has enough cash to last through the end of the year, said David Woodle, vice chairman of the Second Mile. Gov. Tom Corbett's office confirmed the state has suspended a planned $3 million grant to the Second Mile "pending further review." The grant...

    On Sunday, the board of directors of the Second Mile program accepted the resignation of President and CEO Dr. Jack Raykovitz. Raykovitz has worked for program for the past 28 years, but both he and the board believe the resignation is best for both parties. Former Penn State University assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, Joe Paterno's onetime heir apparent, was charged with sexually assaulting eight boys over a 15-year period. Sandusky founded The Second Mile charity in 1977, working with at-risk youths. It now raises and spends several million dollars each year for its programs. “Although the allegations against Jerry Sandusky...

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The judge who ruled former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky be freed on $100,000 unsecured bail after being charged with 40 counts of sexual abuse against children is a volunteer for The Second Mile, the charity Sandusky founded. The state Attorney General's Office requested $500,000 bail and an electronic leg monitor for Sandusky, but District Judge Leslie Dutchcot, active in several volunteer roles, ordered Sandusky, a State College resident, to have no contact with children. He will not have to pay any money unless he fails to appear for court. Dutchot also serves as counsel...

    Through charity, Sandusky had access to vulnerableBy KEVIN BEGOS and MARK SCOLFORO Updated at 07:25 PM today **SNIP** Records from The Second Mile show that the organization asks staff members and volunteers to sign a statement affirming they have never been suspected of child abuse. They must also submit a criminal background check. Officials from the Second Mile didn't respond to a question about whether any such checks were ever done on Sandusky. The Second Mile said in a statement that it has done "everything in our power to cooperate with law-enforcement officials." But Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly said...

    Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky has been charged with sexually abusing eight children, with something like a dozen more also claiming they were victimized. That's horrible. Powerful PSU figures appear to have attempted to cover up what they knew. That makes it even worse. But if one rumor turns out to be true, this may become a story too awful to compare to any other. There's been nothing reported by an investigative journalist or law enforcement official so far, but a handful of media members are talking about investigations into whether Sandusky may have shared some of his victims...

    What he said was twice as shocking as anything that's been released thus far. "I can give you a rumor and I can give you something I think might happen," Madden told John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. "I hear there's a rumor that there will be a more shocking development from the Second Mile Foundation -- and hold on to your stomachs, boys, this is gross, I will use the only language I can -- that Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich donors. That was being investigated by two prominent columnists even as I...
