Vt. Diocese faces 5 new claims

More claims of child molestation have been filed against Vermont's Roman Catholic Diocese.

Last May, the Diocese agreed to pay $17 million to 26 former altar boys. Most of the sex abuse cases stemmed from the 1970s and focused on the Rev. Edward Paquette, a former Burlington priest.

Five new claims have now been filed. Four allege abuse by Father Paquette. The fifth case accuses former Burlington priest Alfred Willis of child molestation.
