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.
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.
