The past couple years have been scarring for Penn State University as they dealt with not only the death of their esteemed Football Coach,  Joe Paterno, but also dealing with the remnants of the Sandusky Sexual Harassment charges & today we learn that the university will be dropping big bread to pay off the victims, $60 Mil to be to the exact. 

Via the AP:

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. The school said 23 deals are fully signed and three are agreements in principle, but 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. “We cannot undo what has been done, but we can and must do everything possible to learn from this and ensure it never happens again at Penn State,” said Erickson, who announced the day Sandusky was convicted in June 2012 of 45 criminal counts that Penn State was determined to compensate his victims. The settlements have been unfolding since mid-August, when attorneys for the accusers began to disclose them. Penn State followed a policy in which it has not been confirming them, waiting instead to announce deals at once. Harrisburg lawyer Ben Andreozzi, who helped negotiate several of the settlements, said his clients were satisfied.
