Jerry Sandusky, Penn State and the second mile charity are facing yet another lawsuit (below) stemming from the child sex abuse scandal. Late last month, a lawyer for alleged victim “D.F.” filed suit. The lawyer, Bret J. Southard, told the Centre Daily Times his client’s lawsuit involves new allegations not previously brought forward when the scandal broke.

The lawsuit says that, in 2008 or 2009, Sandusky took D.F. on a shopping spree that also involved oral sex. The suit also says Sandusky raped the boy after Penn State’s football opener in 2008.

The filing says the plaintiff was on a list of boys from the Second Mile charity with check marks next to their names.

“The collective silence of various individuals, in addition to all defendants, were overt acts committed,” the filing reads. “Said acts were committed with malice and with the intention that the welfare of children within [The Second Mile] and [Penn State] be endangered.”

The plaintiff is asking for $550,000 in the lawsuit, plus punitive damages.
