Clergy Abuse Victim Reaches Deal With Archdiocese

CBS-58 News/January 22, 2004

Milwaukee - A clergy sex abuse victim will receive more than $50,000 after a settlement deal with Milwaukee's Archdiocese. Scot Edgerton will use most of the money for a college education.

When he was thirteen, Edgerton says a priest at St. Aloysius in West Allis sexually assaulted him. Thursday night, Edgerton received a letter from former Archbishop Rembert Weakland apologizing for the abuse by that priest, who's now dead. Edgerton says its the final step he waited for to finally move on after twenty eight years.
