Ohio priest found guilty of taking 10-year-old boy to West Virginia for sex to be sentenced

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, February 12, 2014 3:03 AM EST

An Ohio priest convicted of taking a 10-year-old boy to West Virginia for sex more than two decades ago is set to be sentenced.

Federal jurors found Robert Poandl guilty in September of transporting a minor in interstate commerce with the intent of engaging him in sex. Poandl could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Prosecutors say the priest from the suburban Cincinnati-based Glenmary Home Missioners took the boy to Spencer, W.Va., in 1991 and raped him while visiting a church there.

Poandl's attorney denied those allegations.

The accuser, now 32, waited until 2009 before telling law enforcement officials in West Virginia that he'd been abused.

The Associated Press generally does not identify people who say they're victims of sexual abuse.
