Second Mile Charity Accepts Resignation Of CEO Jack Raykovitz

Monday November 14th, 2011

The Second Mile charity announced today it has accepted the resignation of CEO Jack Raykovitz amidst Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse charges, according to the Harrisburg Patriot-News

"Although the allegations against Jerry Sandusky and the alleged incidents occurred outside Second Mile programs and events, this does not change the fact that the alleged sexual abuse involved Second Mile program children, nor does it lessen the terrible impact of sexual abuse on its victims," the charity said in a statement released Monday.

Raykovitz had served as the CEO of Second Mile for 28 years. Sandusky has been charged with 40 counts of child abuse and is currently released on bail, but restricted from contact with children. It has been alleged by the Attorney General that all of Sandusky's victims were participants in the Second Mile charity.
