[with video]

A local priest accused of child sex crimes is back in Kansas after his recent arrest in Maryland.

Father Scott Kallal was in Maryland for counseling, but he was accused of inappropriately touching a young girl while serving at Saint Patrick Church in Kansas City, Kansas.

He has been charged with two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Thursday night, Kallal was booked into the Wyandotte county jail on $250,000 bond. Friday, though, Kallal had his first appearance and a judge reduced his bond to $50,000.
