The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles will pay nearly $10 million to settle four clergy sex abuse cases which alleged abuse by former priest Michael Baker and were scheduled to go to trial soon.
Recently released files show Baker met with Cardinal Roger Mahony in 1986 and confessed to molesting two brothers for nearly seven years. Mahony sent Baker for psychological treatment but eventually put him back in ministry, where he molested again. Baker was convicted of molesting one boy in 2007. Mahony is in Rome helping select the next pope. (AP)
