FORT WORTH (AP) - A North Texas diocese has reached a settlement with a man who says he was sexually abused by a priest in the 1990s.

The Fort Worth Roman Catholic Diocese on Tuesday announced the settlement with a man whose name has not been released. Terms were not disclosed in the case involving allegations of abuse by then-priest Philip Magaldi.

Officials say the victim was about 9 years old when he allegedly was abused by Magaldi in 1994.

Magaldi was defrocked in 1999 and died in 2008. The 72-year-old Magaldi was never charged and maintained his innocence.

Bishop Kevin Vann also has apologized to the victim.
