The Buffalo Diocese has offered a woman $400,000 to settle a sex abuse claim against an accused priest.
That is according to The Buffalo News.
Stephanie McIntyre accused Rev. Fabian J. Maryanski of sexually abusing her when she was a teenager back in the 80s. McIntyre says she will probably accept the offer but she is still working out her emotions since first hearing about the offer on Wednesday.
McIntyre has 60 days to accept the offer. If accepted, she is agreeing not to sue the diocese over the abuse.
McIntyre told The Buffalo News, "It was never about the money. It was about accountability, and that still has not occurred."
