I-Team Investigation: Priest Abuse Settlement


Feb 14, 2005 11:15 pm US/Eastern
PHILADELPHIA (KYW) An CBS 3 Eyewitness News investigation has exposed years of sexual abuse by a Delaware Valley Priest.

Now, as I-Team Reporter Tom Negovan explains, there's a financial settlement from the Catholic Church, a long-overdue apology, and a victim who's telling his story for the first time only to CBS 3.

John Dougherty tells us he's convinced he's not alone, that Father Carley had dozens of other young victims and that many of them still live in the Delaware Valley.

The church says if there are other victims, it hopes they'll come forward and get help.

John Dougherty understands: “When you tell someone you've been raped, people just don't know how to react to that. They don't know what to say."
