STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California Roman Catholic diocese has reached a $1.75 million settlement with a man who said he was sexually abused by a priest who spoke openly in a 2006 documentary about molesting children.

The Diocese of Stockton disclosed the settlement on Wednesday.

The alleged victim said he was 11 or 12 years old when he was abused by Oliver O'Grady in Stockton in the 1980s.

In his lawsuit filed in 2009, he said his younger brother and sister were also abused by O'Grady. Those cases were settled for $2 million.

O'Grady talked about abusing more than 20 children in the Academy Award-nominated documentary, "Deliver Us From Evil."

He was sentenced to three years in prison for possession of child pornography last year in Ireland, where he was deported after serving seven years in prison for molesting two California brothers.
