Prosecutors in Pennsylvania hope to steer some of the $60 million in fines Penn State must pay the NCAA to children's advocacy centers across the state.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams says the group is not asking for a specific amount of money.

But there are only 21 advocacy centers across the state's 67 counties. Officials hope to build more.

The centers offer a single place for children to tell their stories of abuse to a trained interviewer, while police, therapists and others watch remotely.

This prevents children from having to tell their stories repeatedly to various experts. The centers also offer various services.

The $60 million fine is part of the NCAA sanctions that stem from the sex-abuse scandal involving convicted assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
