HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -It’s been just over a year since Jerry Sandusky was convicted of molesting boys, and Penn State will soon know the cost of compensating the victims of his heinous acts. The lawyer hired by the university to negotiate with those victims announced Monday that agreements have been reached with 25 of Sandusky’s 31 victims.
Harrisburg attorney Ben Andreozzi represents nine of them, and he confirmed that he’s “very close” to finalizing compensation for his clients. He called it an important step.
“You can’t take the hands of time and eliminate what happened to them,” Andreozzi said, “but you can try to lead them toward healing, and that’s the best we can hope to do.”
