UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State University announced Monday that it has agreed to pay nearly $60 million to victims of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Sandusky was convicted in June 2012 of abusing several boys on and off campus.

The university said that 26 victims will receive payments of $59.7 million in return for releasing the school from any other claims.

School officials said the payments will come from insurance policies, not from tuition or donations.

Sandusky was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison in October of 2012.

    Penn State shouldn’t have to pay a dime! It’s funny that money will make everything all right. The “victims” have had to suffer through physical and mental anguish but a few million will make everything better! BS! The “victims” should also be barred from writing books, getting paid for interviews, etc.. If any money changes hands it should come from the estates of Sandusky and the administrators who ignored the situation for all those years.

    Oh, they were so wronged, but now that they have millions, everything will be OK and the school is no longer liable. If I had a dollar for all the misfortune in my life I’d be a billionaire.
