Penn State payouts on Sandusky abuse claims now top $100M

HARRISBURG, Pa. Penn State has paid out an additional $16 million to people with claims they were sexually abused by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, raising the total amount of payouts to more than $100 million. The school previously said it settled with 33 people for $93 million. The new payouts bring the total to $109 million.

It's not clear how many people shared in the latest settlements, which were paid during the 2016-17 school year.

The university also disclosed Friday that it spent at least $4.9 million last year on related internal investigations and costs.

The latest payments mean the school's overall Sandusky-related costs now exceed a quarter-billion dollars.
