Penn State: Scandal costs stand at more than $27M
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State’s bill for legal fees, consultants and other costs associated with the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal stands at more than $27.6 million.
An updated figure as of November 2012 was provided this week on a university website. It includes a $13 million price tag for board of trustees communications and the internal investigation into the scandal by former FBI Director Louis Freeh.
Freeh’s findings released last summer were the subject of renewed scrutiny earlier this week after Joe Paterno’s family released an extensive response conducted by its own experts. The late coach’s family said the report was flawed and said Freeh made unfounded accusations that Paterno acted to cover up allegations against Sandusky.
Sandusky, a former assistant football coach under Paterno, is serving a prison term for 45 counts of child sexual abuse involving 10 boys. He maintains his innocence.

2. Only $27 million?
It should have cost 10 times that considering the coverups.
All TV revenues from football games should have gone to the victims for the next 20 years.

Investigation $27 m
NCAA fine $60 m
Big Ten fine $13 m
That brings the total to right about $100 million before all the lawsuits from victims families. Plus there are former employees suing the school.
