Sciacca, June 26 - A former priest was charged
Wednesday with committing sexual acts with minors and is
expected to appear in court next month.
Davide Mordino, 42, the former pastor of the Basilica of
Saint Calogero in Sciacca, a town on the southwest coast of
Sicily, is under house arrest until his court appearance July
17.
Police say the former priest performed sexual acts with
four boys, while two others say he tried to assault them as
well.
Mordino, who left the basilica just before Christmas in
2009, is accused of having induced minors to pose naked for
photos.
The arrest comes a day after police in Rome announced they
were investigating reports of a sexual-abuse and prostitution
ring involving minors and operating out of local churches.
Police said that no priests were under investigation in
Rome, but a police officer is accused of organizing the ring.
A teacher and lay officials at some churches in the capital
are being investigated.
Authorities say that boys, many foreign-born and recruited
around Rome's main Termini railway station, worked as
prostitutes inside the churches.
