Priest charged with storing child porn on computer gets eight months


BARNSTABLE (AP) -- A Catholic priest who pleaded guilty to child pornography charges earlier this year will spend eight months in prison.

The Reverend Stephen Fernandes was suspended from his post as pastor of Our Lady of Fatima Church in New Bedford last year.

In court this past September, he admitted to charges of storing hundreds of images of children engaging in sexual acts on his computer.
