BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania county officials say taxpayers have spent nearly $56,000 on the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse trial so far, most of it on employee overtime.
Centre County commissioners say the bulk of the cost is associated with security supplied by sheriff's deputies for the two-week trial and other pretrial court dates.
Taxpayers in the county also paid for meals and lodging for the jurors who convicted Sandusky of abusing 10 boys, including some on Penn State's campus.
The Centre Daily Times (http://bit.ly/Pm1ctW) reports that the current tab is $55,930. But Sandusky still must be sentenced, so the cost is expected to rise.
Centre County Administrator Tim Boyde says the county will seek reimbursement from the state attorney general's office. Taxpayers will still foot the bill if the attorney general's office agrees.
