BOSTON: Catholic Priest Busted For Child Porn As MORE Files Were Downloading
On Monday when Boston detectives burst in to arrest yet another Catholic priest for distributing child pornography, they found his computer humming away with more downloads.
Rev. Andrew J. Urbaniak, 39, mostly kept his head down during his arraignment in South Boston Municipal Court where he pleaded not guilty to charges of possession and dissemination of child pornography. Judge Michael Bolden set bail at $10,000 cash. For the past four years, Urbaniak has been assigned to Our Lady of Czestochowa Church in South Boston where he is currently the pastor. In the wake of his arrest, the Archdiocese of Boston issued a statement saying Urbaniak is now on administrative leave and is banned from performing his religious duties as a priest. “Urbaniak’s faculties have been suspended and he is not allowed to function as a priest in the Archdiocese,’’ the statement said. “The Archdiocese is fully cooperating with law enforcement. The Church prays for all those impacted by these events and is committed to providing for the pastoral care of the parish during this difficult time.’’Urbaniak is from Poland. Wanna bet the Archbishop of Warsaw shipped him overseas for some undisclosed reason?
