A children's charity founded by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is asking a judge for permission to sell its headquarters.

Judge William Morgan on Friday scheduled a March 28 hearing on the request by The Second Mile to sell the two-story building in State College for $650,000.

The Second Mile was started by Sandusky in 1977 to help at-risk children.

Sandusky was convicted last summer of sexually abusing 10 boys, some on Penn State's campus. He's serving a 30- to 60-year state prison sentence but maintains he's innocent and is pursuing appeals.

Prosecutors have said Sandusky met most of his victims, if not all of them, through The Second Mile.

In the filing, lawyers say the sale proceeds would pay for victims' claims, programs and legal fees.
