CINCINNATI -- A grand jury in West Virginia indicted a Cincinnati priest last week on child sex charges.The charges against the Rev. Robert F. Poandl are related to a complaint filed by a 28-year-old Cincinnati man who said he was molested by the priest during a 1991 trip to Spencer, W.Va. The man said Poandl molested him when he was 10 years old at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church Rectory.
Police investigated the man's claims and a grand jury indicted Poandl on Jan. 26 on charges of first-degree sexual abuse, first-degree sexual assault and sexual abuse by a custodian. Poandl was released on bond last week.
Poandl is a member of the Glenmary Home Missioners, a religious society of priests and brothers, in Cincinnati. http://www.wlwt.com/news/22413407/detail.html
