Mongoose: Catholic Church Payments Plan for Pedophile Priest Transgressions — Sodomy $50,000 to $75,000

Victims fondled over their clothes were to be paid $10,000 to $25,000; fondled under their clothes or subjected to masturbation, $15,000 to $40,000; subjected to forced oral sex, $25,000 to $75,000; subjected to forced sodomy or intercourse, $50,000 to $175,000.
