Wealthy Catholic Donor Offered Money To Make Sex Abuse Complaints Go Away

A prominent donor to the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans offered $400,000 to an alleged sexual abuse victim to settle his claims and stop cooperating with police in a criminal investigation, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in Jefferson Parish.

The court complaint details allegations against Virgil Maxey “V.M.” Wheeler III, a local attorney and former deacon at St. Francis Xavier Church in Metairie who was arrested in March. The Jefferson Parish district attorney has not yet determined whether it will pursue charges against the 63-year-old.
