LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former Catholic priest charged with viewing child pornography at his Louisville church has pleaded not guilty in federal court.

Federal investigators say 57-year-old Stephen Pohl used computers at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, where he worked.

The Courier-Journal reports (https://cjky.it/1N6hVdu ) Pohl pleaded not guilty to one count of accessing child porn Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Louisville.

Shortly after resigning, Pohl was arrested in Florida in August and charged. A criminal complaint says searches of the church office and rectory revealed Pohl viewed multiple pornographic online images of nude boys ranging in age from infancy to mid-teens.

Pohl was allowed to live under house arrest with his mother after a hearing in September.

Magistrate Judge Colin Lindsay set a trial date for Jan. 12.
