STATE COLLEGE — Penn State has released a document sought by some of its critics detailing the agreement with former FBI Director Louis Freeh to investigate the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, a review that cost the school about $8.1 million.

Including the bill to pay Freeh, Penn State's total costs associated with the scandal topped $41 million as of the end of December, the university disclosed Monday on a website.

The monthly financial update provided more itemization for certain costs, including the Freeh report. The update counted the first of five annual $12 million installments — paid in December — to cover the $60 million fine from the NCAA as part of landmark sanctions over the scandal.

Some alumni had called on the university to release itemized costs and the letter of agreement with Freeh that outlined his responsibilities and the scope of the internal investigation. Penn State posted the letter, which called for the Freeh report to “provide recommendations ... for actions to be taken to attempt to ensure that those and similar failures do not occur again.”

Trustee Anthony Lubrano has said the school should ask for a refund from Freeh because the investigation was not full or complete.
