Boston priest arrested on child pornography charges
(Reuters) - A South Boston priest was charged on Wednesday with possessing and distributing child pornography using a computer in his parish's rectory, authorities said.
Andrew J. Urbaniak was arraigned in South Boston District Court on one count of possession of child pornography and one charge of distributing images of a child in the nude, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.
Police arrested Urbaniak, 39, at Our Lady of Czestochowa, a Polish church in the Archdiocese of Boston, on Tuesday.
After obtaining a search warrant, detectives seized Urbaniak's computer, where pornographic images of girls between the ages of 8 and 10 were found, according to the Boston Police Department.
