HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The first settlement between Penn State and one of Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse victims marks a legal milestone after negotiations that have lasted nearly a year.
The attorney for a 25-year-old suburban Philadelphia man who testified at Sandusky's criminal trial said his client finalized a settlement on Friday.
Attorney Tom Kline said the man should receive his payment within a month.
Another lawyer said 10 other claims are close to being resolved, but a third attorney said his two cases are only "a work in progress."
A legal expert said even the cases that don't settle in the near future aren't likely to go to trial.
The cases are being worked out as three former Penn State administrators await trial for an alleged cover-up of complaints about Sandusky.
