Troubled Pennsylvania State University is starting to resolve some of the claims that arose from the Jerry Sandusky debacle.
The school announced Friday that it has approved settlement offers to some of the victims of Jerry Sandusky, the ex-football coach who last year was convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys for 15 years. Sandusky is serving a minimum of 30 years behind bars for his crimes.
The settlement offers are for people who made claims related to Sandusky. The statement didn’t specify the number of claims that could be resolved or the dollar amounts of the settlement offers.
“Today’s action is yet another important step toward the resolution of claims from Sandusky’s victims,” Penn State President Rodney Erickson said in the statement. “The University intends to deal with these individuals in a fair an expeditious manner, with due regard to their privacy.”
