Insurer disputes Sandusky charity payouts

CBSSports.com wire reports

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- An insurance company for the charity founded by Jerry Sandusky says it should not have to pay any future legal expenses for the former Penn State assistant football coach now accused of molesting children.

Federal Insurance Co. on Friday filed a complaint in federal court claiming it would be wrong for it to pay for any civil judgments against Sandusky because he is accused of conduct that did not involve his position as an executive of The Second Mile charity.

The filing was first reported by the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader.

Sandusky is charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over more than a decade. He has denied the allegations.

One accuser has sued Sandusky and the charity for troubled youth.

Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola said he hadn't seen the complaint Friday.
