Priest NOT Accused of Pedophilia

A New York priest arrested after allegedly harassing a
Brooklyn bishop has confessed to stealing $50,000 from a church.

Detectives recovered a bag filled with $88,000 in cash during a search
of John Johnston’s apartment in Queens.

They also found an assortment of Second World War uniforms and backpacks,
busts of Nazi leaders, a collection of both gay and straight pornography
and an illegal handgun.

As part of a deal with prosecutors, Johnston pleaded guilty to criminal
possession of stolen property and will be sentenced to five years’ probation
when he returns to court April 16.

The 64-year-old priest has also agreed to pay $50,000 in restitution
to St Martin of Tours church on Long Island – where he had served for
25 years.
