KC Bishop charged for not bringing porn to police

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City-St. Joseph Catholic Diocese and its bishop were charged Friday with not telling police about pornographic images discovered on computer used by a priest who now faces several child pornography charges.

Bishop Robert Finn pleaded not guilty to one misdemeanor count of failing to report suspected child abuse. Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said Finn and his diocese, which also was charged with one count, had "reasonable cause" to suspect a child had been abused after learning of the images.
