Sexual abuse lawsuits involving priest and church are settled - KansasCity.com
Sometimes sexually abusive Priests become murderous…
Two sexual abuse lawsuits, one involving a former Kansas City area Catholic priest and another filed against a church in western Missouri, have been settled.
The Archdiocese of San Antonio announced that it had settled a lawsuit against the Rev. John M. Fiala for nearly $1 million. A lawsuit against New Life Bible Church in St. Joseph was settled for an undisclosed amount.
Fiala was charged last year with solicitation to commit capital murder after authorities said he tried to hire a hit man to kill the teenage boy who accused him. He is being held in a Dallas County jail on $800,000 bond.
