$3 Million Settlement In Case of Abuse By Former Priest
San Francisco, CA — The Stockton diocese and lawyers for a victim of abuse by a former priest have agreed to settle a pending civil claim for $3 million.
The unidentified victim accused the diocese of failing to protect him from a known molester, Oliver O´Grady.

O´Grady has a history of abuse in the diocese where he served from 1971-1993.
