On Tuesday, the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph agreed to pay $9.95 million to settle 30 lawsuits that alleged sexual abuse by priests.
The plaintiff’s attorney Rebecca Randles said the decision is bittersweet.
“On the one hand, the settlement is wonderful. It will help a lot of these men. But on the other hand, there is just no amount of money that can adequately compensate the loss of innocence.”
