BUFFALO, N.Y. - A South Carolina resident has received the largest cash settlement offer reported from the Buffalo Roman Catholic Diocese, Two On Your Side has confirmed.

The offer of $400,000 was made to Stephanie McIntyre. The offer was first reported by the Buffalo News on Wednesday.

McIntyre, 50, accused Fr. Fabian Maryanski of sexually abusing her when she was a teenager.

Fr. Maryanski is now retired and was placed on leave by the diocese back in May of 2018.

On Saturday, Two On Your Side learned that talks have begun in possible settlements for victims who have been sexually abused by priests.

Attorney Kevin Stocker, who is representing eight of the 191 victims told 2 On Your Side that settlements with the Diocese of Buffalo are being negotiated with his client, but settlement numbers are low, in his opinion.

Stocker said a settlement of $35,000 has been offered to his client.

A recent Two On Your Side investigation suggests the price tag for the diocese to settle all cases will reach into the tens of millions of dollars...at a minimum.
