HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A lawyer says his client is the first to settle a civil claim against Penn State related to the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse case.
Attorney Tom Kline confirmed in an email that the client known as Victim 5 when he testified at Sandusky's criminal trial has agreed to terms with the university.
The deal was first reported Saturday by The Philadelphia Inquirer.
The paper says it's was among 26 settlements expected soon among the 31 young men who have pressed claims over the actions of the university's former assistant football coach. A Penn State spokesman says the school ``continues to make progress on multiple settlements'' but isn't commenting on the newspaper's report of a multimillion-dollar deal.
Sandusky is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence.
