Victims Reach Settlement with Penn State
(CNN) — Jerry Sandusky’s adopted son and six other victims of the former Penn State assistant football coach have finalized settlement agreements with the university, attorneys said.
The amounts of the settlements are confidential.
Sandusky, 69, was convicted in June 2012 on 45 counts of child sex abuse, ranging from corruption of minors to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. He was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison.
“The settlement is never going to take away what he did, but it will give me an opportunity to take the proper steps to recovery from this. It’s not about the money. It’s about holding people accountable for the things that they have done,” a man known as Victim 10 said in a statement from attorneys Joel Feller and Matt Casey.
Victim 10 joined Victim 2, Victim 3, Victim 7, Sandusky’s adopted son, Matt, and two others in the settlement.
