BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A judge has ordered a Greek Orthodox priest held on $100,000 bail on a charge of possessing child pornography.

Deputy District Attorney Mike Roberts said Wednesday that police originally began investigating 52-year-old Adam Metropoulos when a woman complained that he’d photographed or videotaped her without her knowledge while she was showering in the priest’s parish-owned home in Bangor.

Roberts tells WZON-AM that Metropoulos acknowledged having child pornography on his computer, as well as having had inappropriate contact with a teenager in the past.

Metropoulos, who was arrested Monday, has been suspended from his duties at St. George Greek Orthodox Church. He wasn’t required to enter a plea Wednesday and he couldn’t be reached at the Penobscot County Jail.
