Return to Oregon for arraignment on child porn charges will be voluntary for ex-semiarian
A Tieton man, arrested last month on charges of viewing child pornography while studying to be a Catholic priest in Oregon, got a step closer to being released from jail.
However, González was not released from the county jail Tuesday because he still faces a hearing on his immigration status with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
González, who emigrated from Jalisco, Mexico, more than 15 years ago, has been living here on a religious visa that expired in 2005.
It must have been a real nail-biter in the mainstream newsrooms: on one hand this was an opportunity to bash Catholics but at the same time the perp was an illegal alien.
