Del. Man Victim of Sex Abuse Case Dies in Accident

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Delaware man who reached a $1.7 million settlement in a priest sex abuse case has been killed in a motorcycle accident.

State police say 43-year-old Joseph Curry was riding his motorcycle at high speed Tuesday morning on U.S. 40 when he ran a red light and crashed into a utility trailer.

In 2011, Curry reached a settlement with St. Dennis parish in Galena, Md., over claims that he was molested as a boy by the late Rev. Edward Carley. Carley was one of several pedophile priests identified by the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington.

Curry had a long history of substance abuse and criminal arrests, which his former attorneys blamed on the emotional trauma he suffered. He was arrested three weeks ago on drug possession charges.
