(State College) -- A Penn State trustee says a consultant should be asked to return "some or all" of the millions Penn State University paid for an internal investigation into the handling of sexual abuse allegations.

Trustee Anthony Lubrano has been a critic of the $6.5 million report by former FBI director Louis Freeh, which concluded that longtime coach Joe Paterno and three former administrators covered up child sexual abuse allegations against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

Lubrano cited a critical report commissioned by the Paterno family.

He said Freeh's report is "far from complete" and Penn State "is entitled to a refund."

Penn State spokesman David La Torre declined to comment yesterday.

Freeh has stood by his findings and called the family's report a "self-serving" effort to shape Paterno's legacy.
