CHARDON, Ohio (WJW) - A Northeast Ohio priest recently charged with additional crimes against children was arraigned Wednesday in the new case.

Father Robert McWilliams is accused of posing as a teen girl to solicit nude photos of a teenage boy in May 2018.

Robert McWilliams

He was charged last week in Geauga County.

McWilliams was arrested in December on child porn charges in Cuyahoga County.

McWilliams had been booked in the Cuyahoga County Jail, until his bond was reduced and he paid to be released from jail.

The same day he was scheduled for release, he was booked on new charges in Geauga County.

McWilliams was moved to the Geauga County Jail Tuesday.

The prosecutor in the Geauga case says the victim is local and that the investigation shows there may be more local victims in other counties.

The judge set McWilliams' bond at $150,000.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for January 15.
