Suspended priest in Detroit pleads guilty to new child-porn charges

Catholic World News - July 24, 2013

A priest of the Detroit archdiocese who was suspended from ministry in 2004 because of sex-abuse accusations has pleaded guilty to criminal charges involving child pornography.

The federal charges against Timothy Murray are not associated with the incident that led to his suspension from ministry. Prosecutors say that he had pornographic images of children in the home where he was living after his suspension.

A spokesman for the archdiocese observed that Church officials cannot constantly monitor the private activities who, after leaving ministry, are living on their own. Suspended priests make monthly reports to the archdiocese, but otherwise are unsupervised.
