A person who was abused by a Catholic priest, who was the son of famed author J.R.R. Tolkien, will be getting triple the compensation from the Catholic Church, according to a report by The Telegraph.

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham opted to reopen previous settlements, a year after being criticized by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse for their handling of cases.
