#Sandusky's Judicial Pal Is Well Connected To The Second Mile

District Judge Leslie Dutchcot, who released Sandusky on (an unsecured) $100,000 bail - far less than the $500,000 requested by prosecutors - names The Second Mile as one of the organizations for which she volunteers, according to her attorney profile on the website of her firm, Goodall & Yurchak.

She and her husband were also listed as donors to The Second Mile in the charity's 2009 Annual Report, having gifted between $500-$999.

The ties between Dutchcot and Second Mile extend beyond volunteering.

In 2007 Robert Stone, the Board Chairman of Second Mile, hosted a fundraiser for Dutchcot in his home, for her campaign for District Judge, according to records of the Committee to Elect Leslie A. Dutchcot.
