Priest Pleads Guilty To Child Porn Charges

Missouri: The former pastor of St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church, in south St. Louis, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a federal charge of possessing child pornography, and admitted that he tried to pay for sex with a 16-year-old girl.

The Rev. James Patrick Grady, 58, was nabbed in an FBI pedophile sting last summer, in which he had agreed to pay $80 for oral sex. Investigators later discovered child porn on his laptop computer, which had been purchased by his parish.
