Penn State says it has agreed to pay $59.7 million to settle 26 claims of sexual abuse by Jerry Sandusky.
Terms of the settlements were kept confidential, but the university said 23 are fully signed and three others are agreed to in principle and are expected to be finalized soon.
Sandusky was found guilty in June 2012 on 45 of 48 counts charging the former assistant football coach of sexual abuse against 10 boys over 15 years. He was sentenced to 30-60 years in prison.
The university received claims from 32 people alleging abuse by Sandusky. Of the other six, some were rejected as being without merit and some are being considered for possible settlements, the university said.
