WINDSOR—The Roman Catholic Diocese of London, Ont., has reached settlements with 10 more sexual abuse victims in southwestern Ontario.

The settlement involves two disgraced priests and totals more than $1.5 million.

Nine victims were abused by Rev. Lawrence Paquette in small communities around the Windsor area.

There are currently two other cases involving Paquette before the courts, while another was settled last summer. Paquette died in 1986.

The tenth victim was abused by former priest Barry Glendinning in Windsor in the mid-60s.

Glendinning was also found guilty of abusing children in London in 1974 and was the subject of a 2004 settlement for $1.4 million.
