A lawyer representing alleged sex abuse victims says the Boston Archdiocese of the Catholic Church has agreed to pay 85 million dollars to settle more than 500 cases.
It's a major step toward ending the crisis that has enveloped the nation's fourth-biggest archdiocese for nearly two years.
The attorney says victims would get awards ranging from 80-thousand to 300-thousand dollars. A mediator will decide who gets what -- depending on the type of abuse, how long it lasted and the injuries suffered by victims.
The attorney calls the settlement ``a form of repentance'' by the church.
It's the biggest known payout by a U-S diocese to settle molestation charges.
