St. Cloud Diocese Settles Lawsuit on Priest Abuse

Sep 25, 2003 | AP

The Diocese of St. Cloud has agreed to pay $500,000 to settle a lawsuit by a woman who says she was sexually abused by a priest.

In the lawsuit, the woman accused Donald Rieder of abusing her in the early 1990's while she was a parishioner at St. John Cantius Church in St. Cloud.

Rieder pleaded guilty in April to criminal sexual conduct and was sentenced to a year in jail. His priestly duties were removed. The woman accused the diocese of knowing for years about Rieder's abuse, but failing to protect parishioners from him.

The diocese had no comment on the settlement.
