ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI - - The St. Louis priest accused offering to pay for sex from a teenage girl pleaded not guilty in federal court Monday. Father James Grady and two other men were arrested last week during an FBI internet sex sting. Court documents show Grady, a priest at St. Raphael's the Archangel in south St. Louis, responded to an internet ad offering young girls for sex. He first asked for a massage then later asked about kissing and oral sex. Grady was arrested when he went to meet the girl who was really a federal agent.

Grady is free on $10,000 dollars bond. He served at St. Raphael's for the last seven years but has been suspended by the Archdioceses of St. Louis pending the criminal investigation.
