PITTSBURGH—A lawyer says a charity founded by a former Penn State assistant football coach accused of molesting boys shouldn't be allowed to dissolve its assets.

Harrisburg lawyer Ben Andreozzi represents someone who claims to be a victim of Jerry Sandusky. The Legal Intelligencer newspaper (http://bit.ly/13lQNt) reported Wednesday that Andreozzi filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction against Sandusky's charity, The Second Mile.

A spokesman for the charity says it received the filing and will adhere to its legal responsibilities.

The charity said last week it was considering its future in light of the scandal and its options include closing, though no decision has been taken.

Sandusky is accused of abusing eight boys. Authorities say he met them through the charity. He says he's innocent.

The charity's most recent tax filing showed it had almost $9 million in assets.
