Penn State: 26 People Get $59.7M Over Sandusky Scandal



Penn State said Monday it is paying $59.7 million to 26 young men over claims of child sexual abuse at the hands of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, a man once revered as a university icon who is now serving what is effectively a life prison sentence.
 
Nearly two years after the retired coach was first charged with child molestation, the school said 23 deals were fully signed and three were agreements in principle. It did not disclose the names of the recipients.
 
The school faces six other claims, and the university says it believes some of those do not have merit while others may produce settlements.
 
University president Rodney Erickson issued a statement calling the announcement a step forward for victims and the school.
