Salinas Police announced today that they are adding two felony counts of possession of child pornography against Rev. Antonio Cortes, the Catholic priest suspected of molesting and providing alcohol to a 16-year-old boy.
Police say they found multiple child porn videos on Cortes' laptop computer. Cortes, who yesterday pleaded not guilty to 12 misdemeanors and one felony count of sodomy with a minor, is expected to be arraigned on the new charges tomorrow.
