A settlement has reportedly been reached between the U.S. government and victims of former Indian Health Service doctor Stanley Weber.
The Wall Street Journal reports, the government will pay somewhere between $1-2 million for each of the eight victims.
The lawsuit against the government claims the Indian Health Service ignored or tolerated Weber’s abuse.
Weber worked for IHS for more than 20 years.
The former pediatrician was convicted of raping and sexually assaulting children he treated in South Dakota and Montana.
In 2020, at age 71, Weber was sentenced to a string of life sentences in prison.
The settlement has not been finalized.
