CONCORD, N.H.—A settlement has been reached in the case of 13 children who were molested at a New Hampshire daycare center.

A judge has approved an agreement to pay a total of $580,000 to the families of the children who were abused by an employee at the Circle of Learning Daycare Center in Nashua.

The Nashua Telegraph reports that then-22-year-old Shane Vadney, of Nashua, was arrested in 2006 and later admitted that he'd molested 12 children while working at the daycare. He's serving 50 years in prison.

Daycare owner, Georgia Flynn, lost her daycare license after his arrest.

The parents of some of the children sued Flynn and her defunct business. A thirteenth alleged victim who was identified later will receive a share of the settlement.
