LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A former priest at St. Margaret Mary is back in Louisville to face child porn charges.

Father Stephen Pohl is scheduled to appear in federal court in Louisville on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. 

Pohl was arrested in Florida on child pornography charges. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Officials say there is evidence that Pohl looked at images of naked children on two work computers. Authorities say the children ranged between the ages of 6 and 16.

Pohl is also accused of taking pictures of students in provocative poses, however the children in those pictures were fully clothed.

The investigation started after a 10-year-old boy told his parents that Pohl asked him to pose for pictures that were "weird."

Pohl could be sentenced to 10 years in prison if he is convicted.
