    The president and CEO of the youth charity founded by accused child rapist and former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has resigned. Jack Raykovitz, the head of The Second Mile, was with the organization for 28 years. The group’s board of directors is planning an investigation into Second Mile’s leadership to insure that the children involved are safe. A grand jury has indicted Sandusky of sexually abusing at least eight boys, all of whom he met through The Second Mile across the span of 15 years. “I hope that my resignation brings with it the beginning of that restoration of faith in the community of volunteers and staff,” Raykovitz said.
