LA Catholic church to pay $10m to settle abuse cases which were 'covered up by Cardinal now in Rome helping to elect the next Pope'
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

The Catholic church in Los Angeles is to pay nearly $10 million to settle four cases of abuse by a paedophile priest, which were allegedly covered-up by a leading U.S. cardinal who is now in Rome helping to elect the next Pope.

The cases involving ex-priest Michael Baker span 26 years from 1974 to 2000. Two had been set for trial next month until the deal was struck.

However attorneys have confirmed that Baker admitted to Cardinal Roger Mahony nearly 30 years ago he had molested children.

Mahony, who retired as Los Angeles archbishop in 2011 and is now in Rome taking part in choosing a new pope, was accused of helping Baker evade law enforcement by sending him out of state to a Church-run treatment center, then placing the priest back in the Los Angeles ministry.
