HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A federal judge says the insurance carrier for the children’s charity that Jerry Sandusky founded doesn’t have to cover him for acts of abuse.
U.S. District Judge Yvette Kane’s ruling issued Friday says Sandusky wasn’t acting as an employee or executive of The Second Mile when he abused and molested boys.
Kane says Sandusky’s behavior was personal in nature and performed in his individual capacity. She sided with Federal Insurance Co.
Sandusky is appealing after being convicted of 45 criminal counts and sentenced to 30 to 60 years. He met victims through The Second Mile.
Sandusky’s appellate lawyer Norris Gelman says he’s sticking with his client, but “without money it’s going to be a little tough.”
Messages weren’t returned by Sandusky’s civil lawyers or by attorneys for Federal Insurance.
