Penn State Negotiator Says Cash Settlements Near 1/26/13
January 26, 2013
HARRISBURG, Pa. - Penn State's negotiator for civil claims involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky says the school has been in talks with 28 people and settlement discussions with some claimants could soon produce results.
The number of claimants is 18 more than were involved in Sandusky's criminal case this summer, when eight young men testified they were assaulted by Sandusky. Prosecutors were not able to identify two victims.
Ken Feinberg tells The Associated Press that the talks have gone well and he is hopeful they will yield settlements in the coming weeks.
