LOCAL DIOCESE TO COMPENSATE VICTIMS OF SEX ABUSE BY PRIESTS

 

By Miriam Raftery

May 15, 2019 (San Diego) -- Victims who were sexually abused as children by priests in California may soon be eligible for compensation by the Roman Catholic Church – but only if they agree not to sue.

Anyone who previously settled a lawsuit will also be excluded, but those barred from suing due to statutes of limitations can apply for compensation. Victims would be eligible regardless of their immigration status.
