Ex-Coach Accused of Using Charity to Assault Boys
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Prosecutors say Jerry Sandusky used the charity he founded to find boys and sexually assault them.

Now, some are wondering if The Second Mile can survive amid questions about its role in the alleged cover-up.

Pennsylvania's governor says the charity should be investigated, and prominent backers don't want their names associated with the group.

Sandusky, 67, was charged last weekend with molesting eight boys over a 15-year period in a scandal that rocked the Penn State campus and brought down the university's beloved football coach, Joe Paterno.
