Crookston MN – A local man claiming leadership at the Diocese of Crookston threatened and intimidated him into hiding his sexual abuse by a clergy member back in the 70s has reached a settlement with the Catholic organization.
A statement on the Diocese of Crookston’s website said that the church and Ron Vasek reached a settlement.
Vasek sued Bishop Michael Hoeppner for threatening and intimidating Vasek to keep quiet about sexual abuse that Vasek says happened to him as a teenager, at the hands of Roger Grundhaus, Vasek’s priest at the time.
