Atonement to the tune of $660 million

Cardinal Roger Mahony of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles, made an apology to the victims of clergy abuse and announced plans for a settlement with the victims/families exceeding a half billion dollars, according to an article in NewsMax here or at Fox News Channel here.

“Once again, I apologize to anyone who has been offended, who has been abused. … It should not have happened and should not ever happen again.”

Isn’t there something missing, like formal charges against the perpetrators?  Crimes were perpetrated upon innocent children who suffered at the hands of trusted clergy. 

How will the Catholic Church try to prevent future occurrences?
