HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — An attorney for seven men, including Jerry Sandusky’s adopted son, have finalized deals with Penn State over claims of abuse by the school’s former assistant football coach.
Lawyer Matt Casey said Friday the settlements were reached by Matt Sandusky, as well as the young man known as “Victim 2” in court records and three others who testified last summer against Jerry Sandusky at his criminal trial.
“Victim 2” has said he was the boy then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary says he saw being attacked by Jerry Sandusky in a shower. McQueary notified top school officials at the time, but police were never called, an omission that eventually led to the firing of coach Joe Paterno.
The university hasn’t announced the deals, saying talks are ongoing in many of the 31 complaints.
