Former Priest Sentenced for Parole Violation

October 5, 2006

Davenport - A former Davenport priest will spend two months behind bars for violating his probation. 41-year-old Richard Poster was sentenced to a year in prison in 2004 for having child pornography.

After his release in January, 2005, he was required to take polygraph tests every six months. A federal probation officer says Poster gave deceptive answers during at least three of those tests, showing he violated probation.

After his two-month sentence, Poster will be monitored with a locator device while serving 120 days at a halfway house and finishing 31 months of treatment.
