STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A newspaper says documents it has obtained show Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s office has spent more than $96,000 in its review of the Jerry Sandusky child-sex investigation.

Kane is investigating how and why it took 33 months for her predecessors - Gov. Tom Corbett and his successor, Linda Kelly - to charge the former Penn State football assistant. Corbett has defended the investigation, noting Sandusky was convicted of 45 of 48 counts and is serving 30 to 60 years in prison.

The Centre Daily Times (https://bit.ly/1i9NrxQ ) says an open-records request shows Kane’s office has spent $96,231, on wages and travel expenses for special investigator Geoffrey Moulton.

Kane has said “time-consuming challenges” have slowed Moulton’s review of the investigation. The newspaper says he’s been paid $72 an hour since last March.
