One alleged victim of sexual abuse in the Jerry Sandusky case sought an injunction Wednesday to stop the Second Mile charity from transferring or divesting its assets. In court papers, the alleged victim said he and others plan to sue the charity, which was founded by Sandusky in 1977 and reported assets of more than $9 million last year.

In the court papers filed in a Pennsylvania state court, lawyers for the alleged victim also maintain that there are at least 11 accusers of Sandusky who have come forward and who will probably file civil claims against the Second Mile.

Sandusky, a former prominent assistant football coach at Penn State, has been charged with 40 counts of sexual abuse. Lawyers for the alleged victim said officials of the Second Mile were negligent for failing to report what they knew of earlier sexual abuse accusations against Sandusky across several years. Grand jury testimony in the case indicated that the Second Mile learned of concerns about Sanduskys contact with boys, including occasions when he showered with them, nearly a decade ago.

We felt it was necessary to take this action after learning the organization was considering transferring its programs and not continuing its operations, Benjamin Andreozzi and Jeffrey Fritz, lawyers for a client they referred to as Victim 4, said in a statement. We believe it is in the best interest of our clients, as well as the other victims, to ensure that the organization is being financially responsible.

1. Has Victim 2 come forward?
He's the one who McQuery caught Sandusky with in the shower. I daresay that everything hinges on him.

2. Sandusky is the only one who knows who Victim 2 is so far.

It would be pretty risky to try to buy him off but I bet Sandusky is wishing he coud.
