STATE COLLEGE - The Pennsylvania charity for troubled youths started by convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky is seeking permission to transfer more money to a Texas ministry that took over some of its programs.

The Centre Daily Times reports that a petition was filed Friday in Centre County court by The Second Mile.

The Second Mile wants to give an additional $300,000 to Houston-based Arrow Family and Child Ministries. Arrow received $200,000 last year.

Second Mile CEO Dave Woodle says the money would only be used to operate youth programs in Pennsylvania. In 2013 Arrow successfully operated some former Second Mile programs, according to the court filing. But Arrow's new fund-raising efforts have lagged.

The Second Mile had been one of the largest providers of youth social services in Pennsylvania until Sandusky's arrest.
