Four men who have been in the child abused by teacher of Catholic school, reached an agreement with the Brooklyn diocese. They will receive compensation in the amount of $27.5 million , approximately $6.8 million each. This amount is one of the largest ever awarded to victims of sexual violence in the Catholic Church.
Recall 2 weeks ago the attorney General of new York was summoned to the Prosecutor’s office of the representatives of all 8 Roman Catholic dioceses of the state in the investigation of allegations of sexual violence. Earlier the Prosecutor’s office of Pennsylvania released a report stating that since the 1940-ies molested by almost 300 Pennsylvania priests have been more than 1 000 children.
“They were boys from second to sixth grade, and were abused for several years! The Church must pay for what she did”, — said the lawyer of one of the victims Ben Rabinowitz.
Molester is 67-year-old Angelo Serrano, a former school teacher with St. Lucy’s-St. Patrick’s Church in Brooklyn. In 2011, he pleaded guilty and is already serving a 15-year prison sentence.
The Brooklyn diocese said that Serrano was a volunteer at the local parish, and was not a spiritual person.
From June 2017 414 man demanded from the diocese of compensation for sexual abuse by the clergy.
