BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A former priest at a Maryland church is behind bars after police report he was making child pornography involving underage boys.

According to our media partner, The Baltimore Sun, 61-year-old Fernando Cristancho served as a priest from 1999 to 2002 at St. Ignatius Church in Harford County.

Cristancho’s assignment at St. Ignatius was his last as a priest, according to the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s website.

His arrest comes after a search warrant was served at his home, in which authorities report finding pictures of young boys on several of his devices.

  1. How can he be a “Former Priest?” Canon Law specifies, “After it has been validly received, sacred ordination never becomes invalid.”
    Canon 290

    This POS belongs to the Roman Catholic Priesthood, and they can’t bail out on him just because he’s one more pervert ordained to the Priesthood.
