STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State’s bill to pay for legal fees, consulting and other costs connected to the response to the child sex abuse scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has neared $43 million.


Updated information Monday on a university website showed the bill at $42.9 million as of the end of January. It’s an increase of nearly $2 million from the previous update last month.


The bill includes the first of the five annual installments of $12 million to pay off the fine imposed by the NCAA as part of strict sanctions. About $8.4 million covered university legal services or defense.


Another $5 million paid for the legal defense fees of individuals including those for three former school administrators facing criminal charges related to the scandal.
