Priest who resigned recently charged with possession of child porn

Connecticut former priest charged with possession of child porn

(CNN) -- A former Catholic priest in Waterford, Connecticut, has been charged with possession of child pornography, according to a statement Tuesday from Waterford police.

Dennis Carey, 66, who resigned recently, was originally held on $100,000 bond after appearing Tuesday in New London Superior Court, the statement said. The court appearance was a bond hearing and no plea was entered, according to CNN affiliate WFSB.

CNN affiliate WTNH reported that Carey was later released on bond.

"It's an addiction that he's going through and he needs help for it," Carey's attorney, Ron Stevens, told WTNH. "And as he mentioned in court, he said to (the judge) 'I need help and I want help.'

"There's no allegations here of any inappropriate touching of children or anything of that nature," Stevens said.

"He feels very, very, very bad about it. He has an appointment this afternoon with a psychiatrist," the attorney said. "He's going to look for forgiveness."

If he feels so damned bad about it, why did he wait until he finally got caught, at age 66, before seeking help?


Did he even confess every instance to his Confessor? If not, why not? If so, what the hell did his Confessor tell him to do about his addiction lo these many years?

1. Couldn't he just bless it and make it holy?
