$60 Million Approved for Payments to Jerry Sandusky's Victims



Penn State University has reached tentative settlements totaling about $60-million so far with men who claim to have been sexually abused by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
 
University Trustee Ted Brown said Thursday that he was unsure of how many claims have been settled and how many remain in negotiations.
 
The trustees voted last Friday to authorize members of a committee to approve settlements on the university's behalf, without detailing how many accusers have come forward with sex-abuse claims involving Sandusky, how many have settled and how much money might be involved.
 
A person familiar with the discussions told the AP on Thursday that about 25 of 31 outstanding claims were covered by the approximately $60-million in settlements the trustees approved. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity to avoid giving information that the university has chosen not to reveal.
 
Brown said trustees were briefed on the dollar figure in private before the vote. School officials have said they will not publicly discuss specific figures until the deals have been made final.
