Judge Orders Priest in Porn Case to Monastery

A federal magistrate judge today ordered the Rev. Michael Volino to stay at an Elmira monastery as he awaits trial on child pornography charges.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Jonathan Feldman said reports from 2002 showed that therapists at a Maryland-based counseling center had decided that Volino should not be around children, based on evaluations of Volino.

Volino, 41, last week was accused of receiving and possessing child pornography after a diocese technician repairing Volino's computer reportedly found pornographic images of children stored there.

Volino's lawyer, John Parrinello, today argued that Volino should be allowed to stay under house arrest in the Rochester area. Feldman indicated he believed the monastery was a safer setting.

Feldman and federal authorities noted that there have been no allegations that Volino abused or improperly touched any child.
