Monetary settlement to Sandusky victim

WILLIAMSPORT — A 22-year old is the latest Jerry Sandusky victim to settle a lawsuit over the abuse he suffered a decade ago. The Patriot News reports that the individual, who wishes to remain anonymous, received a monetary settlement described as “sizeable.” The exact amount remains confidential. The lawsuit alleged that the former foster child had been sexually abused by Sandusky in a shower room on campus, the basement of the former defensive coordinator’s home and elsewhere. The settlement also requires Penn State to pay for counseling and implement changes aimed at preventing future occurrences of child abuse. Reports say the victim is not one of the 10 victims alluded to charges that led to Sandusky’s conviction and sentence of 30-60 years in prison.
