A southeastern Montana school district Wednesday announced a settlement of $9 million with victims of an athletic trainer who molested students over a period of three decades.

The $9 million settles a civil lawsuit filed by 32 victims of former Miles City high school athletic trainer James “Doc” Jensen. The money will come from the school district’s insurers rather than from tax dollars.
