Polish priest arrested in Brazil, accused of turning rectory into dungeon

May 26, 2010

Father Marcin Michal Strachanowski, a 44-year-old Krakow priest who ministers in the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro, has been arrested on charges of handcuffing a 16-year-old boy to a bed and threatening to kill him. A judge said that Father Strachanowski had “erotic material sent to the victim via the Internet to seduce him” and that the priest converted his residence into a dungeon, “where he submitted [youths], often with the use of handcuffs, to orgies.”
