The former student — who was not identified in court papers — told the F.B.I. that he had been inappropriately touched by Mr. Hastert when the former speaker was a high school teacher and wrestling coach, the two people said Friday. The people briefed on the investigation spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified discussing a federal investigation.Man, that must have been some "inappropriate touching" to be worth $3.5 million! How would you prove you were inappropriately touched thirty years ago?
Well, good for his former student! It sounds like he or she hasn't gotten the full three and a half million bucks, but I hope the law leaves him or her alone to enjoy what money he or she got.
