Texas: former priest charged with seeking to arrange murder of abuse accuser
Catholic World News - January 26, 2011
In Texas, a former Catholic priest will be in court this week to face charges that he tried to hire someone to kill a boy who had accused him of sexual abuse.
John Fiala has been behind bars since his arrest last November on murder-for-hire charges. Last week the San Antonio archdiocese reached a settlement of nearly 1 million in a lawsuit brought by his accuser. Fiala denies all wrongdoing.
