SEATTLE (AP) – The Archdiocese of Seattle says it will pay $375,000 to settle two separate claims of sexual abuse in the 1970s and 1980s.
The Roman Catholic archdiocese said Thursday it settled a case involving allegations of childhood sexual abuse in the 1970s by David Pearson, a volunteer at St. Joseph Parish in Issaquah.
The archdiocese also says it settled a case involving an allegation of sexual abuse by Father Paul Conn in about 1987 when he served at Queen of Angels Parish in Port Angeles.
Conn pleaded guilty to six counts of indecent liberties, and served time in prison. Pearson has died.
