STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Former board members of Jerry Sandusky’s charity say its CEO never told them about a 2002 shower incident that is the focus of child sexual abuse charges against the retired Penn State assistant coach.
If they knew Sandusky had been banned from bringing kids on campus, they say they could have taken steps to better protect children a decade ago.
A judge who served on board for The Second Mile, Bradley Lunsford says “Not one thing was said to us.”
He says if more information had been given to board members, they would have followed up.
Lunsford and four other former board members at The Second Mile point the finger at Jack Raykovitz, a close friend of Sandusky’s who ran the charity until resigning after the former coach’s arrest last month.
Raykovitz says he acted appropriately at all times.
