He pleaded guilty in June to possessing child pornography and related offenses.

Court records say authorities began investigating Mraz last year, after a member of his church discovered a file link named “naked little boys.”



Mraz was formerly with St. Ann Catholic Church in Emmaus, and was once chaplain at Lehigh University in Bethlehem. He’s also a former teacher at Central Catholic High School in Allentown.
