Jerry Sandusky's victims deserve every penny of the huge payment coming their way from an approval that the Penn State board of trustees has authorized.
They'll be getting roughly $60 million dollars — though we bet every one of them would give it up to have not been molested by such a monster, and to not have had those around him cover it up because football was deemed more important than young lives.
Jerry Sundusky is currently serving 30 to 60 years in prison for allegedly committing child sexual abuse, and taking into mind that his late ex-boss, Joe Paterno was accused of covering the molestation — Paterno's wifey Sue is now saying that she and her hubby were "ignorant to the magnitude of the problem."
Sue spoke at the the Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance's annual breakfast, which is a nonprofit that focuses on preventing child abuse, in Harrisburg, Pa. earlier today, and she admits that she never thought of Jerry as a child molester and even feels she and her husband helped him "groom his victims."
Miz Paterno has been defending Joe like crazy though, and we don't think she's gonna stop now, even if she revealed that she handled the situation without thinking about what was really going on.

For the past couple of weeks it feels like it's been Matt Lauer vs. The World. But apparently there's at least one person out there willing to stick up for him!
The Today show's executive producer Don Nash rushed to the aid of the highly scrutinized anchor and said the show would suffer without him.
Matt has been under heavy fire recently for multiple incidents, including a controversial interview that featured sound bytes from Jerry Sandusky, and some are even putting the blame on him for the Today show's drop in ratings.
But Don is hoping to clear the air and says he has no plan on getting rid of Matt. In fact, he says everybody LOVES him:
Matt Lauer just can't seem to catch a break lately!
The anchor was already under heavy scrutiny for the firing of Ann Curry and the Today show's plummeting ratings, and we're guessing his highly controversial interview with filmmaker John Ziergler concerning Jerry Sandusky isn't helping him win any popularity contests!
But it sounds like some good might come out of this ugly mess, as we're hearing NBC is reaching out to Anderson Cooper to replace Matt!
A source close to the situation claims that the deal could be coming fairly soon, saying:
The super controversial Jerry Sandusky interview aired yesterday on the Today show, and after it received a whole mess of backlash, anchor Matt Lauer thinks that NBC set him up for FAILURE!!
Lauer hosted the 30-minute segment, which featured filmmaker John Ziergler and recordings from the child molester, and while he was interviewing Ziegler, the host looked like he was in an agonizing state.
According to reports, Matt feels that producers PLAYED him:
Penn State assistant coach and convicted child molester, Jerry Sandusky just had a prison interview with John Ziegler on the Today show, and while the session was conducted in order to try to clear Sandusky's ex-boss, Joe Paterno's name, NBC is now receiving backlash for even administering the interview.
