A judge has ruled that the Pennsylvania charity for troubled youths started by convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky can transfer $200,000 and other small assets to a Texas ministry, which will assume operations of some programs.

Arrow Child & Family Ministries of Houston says it will assume operations May 1 of some programs that were run by The Second Mile.

A court ruling filed Monday also allows The Second Mile to send donor and program databases to Arrow. The State College-based charity concluded last May that it could not continue operating after the Sandusky scandal.

Judge William Morgan's ruling noted that $200,000 is less than 5 percent of The Second Mile assets and that no objections were filed to the small transfer.
