Penn State's board of trustees voted Friday to approve settlement offers to some of the victims of Jerry Sandusky's child-sex abuse. At the time, no figures were made public. But the Legal Intelligencer, a law newspaper based in Philly, is citing sources who say the offers are "in the close proximity of" $60 million.
Sandusky was convicted of molesting 10 boys and sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison, but prosecutors had additional victims waiting in the wings on federal charges in the event he was acquitted last summer. A total of 32 plaintiffs have approached Penn State with claims.
