The Norwich Roman Catholic Diocese has paid $900,000 to settle a lawsuit alleging a priest sexually abused a boy for 10 years, beginning when the child was 11 years old.

Plaintiff Jonathan Roy, now 40, is one of multiple men to bring allegations against Paul Hebert, who retired from the Most Holy Trinity Church in Pomfret, Conn., where he served as priest until 2004. His case was the third time the diocese has settled a suit involving Hebert, who died in 2010 after serving several congregations. The Norwich Diocese is in Connecticut and parts of New York.
