Pennsylvania State University says it will pay the first $12 million of its $60 million fine imposed by the NCAA on Dec. 20. The NCAA imposed the fine over sex-abuse charges against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

The university said on its website Friday that it would pay $12 million annually for the next five years into an endowment created to fund programs for the detection, prevention, and treatment of child abuse.
