DAs want $60M Penn State fine to pay for child advocacy

Posted: August 10, 2012

WHAT TO DO with the $60 million the NCAA fined Penn State in the Jerry Sandusky case?

Many suggestions have been made, and the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association has now given a strong recommendation that the money go to expanding the successful, if limited, children's advocacy centers.

In a letter to Penn State president Rodney Erickson and NCAA president Mark Emmert, the D.A.'s said that expanding access to CAC services, now available in only 21 of the state's 67 counties, would best meet the goal of the penalty. CAC services "offer a comprehensive approach in assisting child sexual abuse victims, including treatment, prosecution and prevention," the D.A.'s said.

Penn State is expected to administer the fund.
