LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A federal grand jury in Louisville has indicted a former Roman Catholic pastor in a child pornography case.

Prosecutors say 57-year-old Stephen Pohl was charged in a criminal complaint in August after searches of areas used by Pohl in the parish office and rectory of St. Margaret Mary parish in Louisville.

Pohl was arrested in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida, in August and appeared in U.S. District Court in Kentucky in September.

The indictment returned Tuesday accuses Pohl of accessing child pornography material on the Internet earlier this year.

Pohl resigned in August. Attorney Ted Shouse, who represents Pohl, declined to comment in an email Tuesday.

Archdiocese of Louisville officials have said that FBI investigators found 200 images of students from the school on Pohl’s computer. The students were clothed but some of the images were “inappropriate.”
