Father Daniel Moreau: bail hearing Postponed

CANADA, - A priest accused of possessing child pornography will have to spend the weekend in jail before having a bail hearing.

Father Daniel Moreau was arrested Thursday at the St. Gabriel Lalement church in Sorel-Tracy, and was brought to court at 10:15 a.m. Friday, but will not have a bail hearing until Monday.

Moreau was only able to hire a lawyer on Friday, and the legal expert said he needed the weekend to study the charges. The Crown is opposing bail.

Parishioners who were in church while Moreau was arrested were shocked to see him led away in handcuffs.
