DALLAS -- A suspended Grand Prairie priest was indicted last week on felony charges of possessing child pornography, court records show.

Father Matthew Bagert, 36, pastor of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church on Northeast 17th Street, was arrested for having child pornography on a church computer.

The Dallas Catholic Diocese indefinitely suspended Bagert after they informed Grand Prairie police of the images.
