Louisville Rev. Stephen Pohl, charged Monday in a federal court with accessing child pornography, isn’t expected to return to Kentucky for another 30 to 40 days, according to the U.S. Marshals Service of the Western District of Kentucky.

Pohl resigned Thursday, Aug. 20 from his post as pastor of St. Margaret Mary Parish amid an FBI and Louisville Metro Police investigation into child pornography images that police said Pohl viewed on two computers in the parish rectory where he lived and worked.

He was arrested Friday by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, appeared in U.S. District Court in Tampa, Fla. on Monday and is now in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
