A victim of a pedophile priest imprisoned for allegedly molesting at least 25 boys has reached a settlement with the Archdiocese of Chicago for $2.95 million.

One of Chicago’s most notorious figures in the Roman Catholic priest sexual abuse scandal, former Chicago priest Daniel McCormack pleaded guilty in 2007 to aggravated criminal sexual abuse for molesting five underage boys while he served as a priest in Chicago.

He was removed from the clergy following his conviction and has since been accused of abusing more than 20 boys during his time at St. Agatha Parish in North Lawndale. McCormack is alleged to have used his position as a priest, teacher and basketball coach to abuse boys in his care.
