ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - A 39-year-old priest in Corvallis has been arrested on child pornography charges.

The Corvallis Gazette-Times (https://bit.ly/1r5lxC9 ) reports Stanley Brittain was taken into custody Thursday after a search of his Albany residence.

He is known to parishioners as Father Isodore.

Brittain was booked in the Linn County Jail on 25 counts each of first-degree encouraging child sex abuse and second-degree encouraging child sex abuse. Police said they got information from a state Department of Justice task force on child abuse.

Albany police said his association with the St. Anne Orthodox Church ended last week. The church’s website says it is a parish of the Diocese of the West of the Orthodox Church in America.
