Los Angeles Archdiocese to Pay $660 Million to 508 Victims

Hosted by

Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles heads the nation's largest Roman Catholic Archdiocese, and he's agreed to the biggest settlement yet with victims of sex abuse by priests. The Los Angeles payout to victims is $660 million, roughly a third of the $2.1 billion that sexual abuse by priests has cost America's Roman Catholic Church in the past 5 years. Despite the payout, Mahony has not earned the forgiveness of all victims' groups, says Bryan Cones, associate editor of US Catholic magazine.
