Priest in Ohio-based order faces abuse indictment



Published: Thu, November 15, 2012 @ 7:13 p.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — A Roman Catholic priest in Cincinnati has been ordered into custody after his indictment on a charge of taking a 10-year-old boy across state lines for sex.

Federal magistrate judge Stephanie Bowman issued the order today against Rev. Robert Poandl of the Cincinnati-based Glenmary Home Missioners.

An indictment in Cincinnati federal court Wednesday accuses Father Poandl without listing specifics of taking the boy on Aug. 3, 1991.

The priest's attorney declined comment today.

In 2010, a West Virginia judge dismissed charges against Father Poandl that accused him of sexually abusing a 10-year-old boy while the two visited a West Virginia church in 1991.

In February Glenmary said it had relieved the priest of ministerial duties in three Georgia communities and asked him to return to the Glenmary residence in Cincinnati.
