$22M DEAL IN PRIESTS’ SEX ABUSE
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Hartford agreed yesterday to pay $22 million to 43 people who said they were molested by priests. The alleged abuse dates back as far as the 1960s and involves 14 priests or retired priests. The archdiocese said six of the accused priests are dead and four are retired. Three others are no longer active in ministry. On remains active, and a sexual abuse review panel determined allegations against him were not credible.
