Milwaukee archdiocese proposes $4M for abuse victims

Milwaukie abuse victimsThe Archdiocese of Milwaukee has proposed setting aside $4 million to compensate the victims of clergy sexual abuse in its bankruptcy reorganization plan, according to a statement provided to The Associated Press.

The archdiocese filed for bankruptcy in 2011, saying pending sexual abuse lawsuits could leave it with debts it couldn't pay. Its creditors include hundreds of people who were sexually abused by clergy. They have accused the archdiocese of covering up priests' crimes while assigning them to new churches without warning parishioners.

Milwaukee archbishop Jerome Listecki said Wednesday morning that the bankruptcy plan will be filed later in the day.

The Milwaukee archdiocese is among more than a half-dozen to file for bankruptcy in recent years. Other dioceses have set aside much larger sums to compensate victims of sexual abuse.

Listecki acknowledged that some might be dismayed by the offer but said the archdiocese would provide therapy for the remainder of victims' lives.
