Penn State has reportedly reached an agreement with most of the 32 plaintiffs who say they were sexually abused by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Pennsylvania State University’s trustees have authorized a payment of $60 million on civil settlements.

Sandusky is serving a 30 to 60 year sentence after being convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years. He claims he was wrongly convicted and is pursuing appeals.
