A federal grand jury indicted a St. Louis priest named Fr. William Vatterott on child pornography charges Wednesday afternoon, U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan said.
Fr. William Vatterott was found to be in possession of the illicit materials between June 2010 and June 2011, according to court documents.
There were two teens who reported to the Archdiocese of St. Louis in 2011 that Fr. Vatterott engaged in “inappropriate electronic communications with them”. One teenager, who was 18-years-old at the time, also reported underage drinking and other undisclosed inappropriate behaviors. Neither teenager reported physical contact or solicitation of any kind.
