(CNN) -- A man who was sexually abused by former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has settled his civil suit against the university -- the first to do so, his lawyer said.
During Sandusky's trial last year, the man was known as Victim 5.
Victim 5's lawyer, Tom Kline, said the settlement terms are bound by a confidentiality agreement with the school, but that "the compensation was fair and adequate."
"My client is relieved," Kline told CNN. "This has been a long process. There has been for him a very public reliving of horror he experienced as a child."
Sandusky, 69, was convicted in June 2012 on 45 counts of child sex abuse, ranging from corruption of minors to involuntary deviate sexual intercourse. He was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison.
At the sentencing, Victim 5 told the court Sandusky's punishment "will never erase what he did to me."
"It will never make me whole," he said. "He must pay for his crimes, take into account the tears, the pain, the private anguish."
