Archdiocese of Atlanta lists Roman Catholic Church sex abuse cases

The Archdiocese of Atlanta lists Roman Catholic Church sex abuse developments since January in the clergy sex abuse scandal that has battered the Roman Catholic Church in America. <br> <br> The Archdiocese of Atlanta said this month that it had responded to six claims in the past 13 years of priests sexually abusing boys. Most of the incidents dated back to the 1960s and &#39;70s.<br> <br> The archdiocese has paid more than $500,000 to settle claims, including $31,250 from its own coffers and the balance from insurers, according to court records and an attorney for the archdiocese. Some of the claims were not pursued in the courts because the statute of limitations had expired.<br> <br> Most of the money went to settle cases involving Anton Mowat and Stanley Idziak, priests who served the Corpus Christi parish in Stone Mountain during the 1980s. Both were removed. Mowat, a visiting priest at the parish, served prison time for molesting four boys.<br> <br> The Atlanta archdiocese said it has no claims against priests currently serving. The Diocese of Savannah, which represents 80 south Georgia parishes, said it has had no claims against any of its priests.<br> <br> <br>
