March 4, 2008

A group dedicated to helping people abused by priests has announced that a settlement worth $1.3 million has been reached by a local religious order.

The "Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests", or SNAP, settled a lawsuit against a religious group called "The Oblates" and Father Antonio Gonzalez.

The former Houston priest was accused of molesting a teenage girl and getting her pregnant before he transferred to Canada.

According to SNAP, Father Gonzalez also worked at churches in Austin, Eagle Pass and Laredo.
