The Kansas City-St. Joseph Diocese racked up more than $3 million in legal bills for sexual abuse cases during the most recent fiscal year, The Kansas City Star reports.

A report from the Catholic diocese included legal costs for the fiscal year that ended June 30. That brings the total paid by the diocese on legal bills and settlements to $27 million in the past four years — not counting a $9.95 million settlement in October involving 32 victims, The Star reports.
