Former Interim Pastor Faces Child Porn Charges

DENVER (AP) — A former interim pastor at a church in Greeley is scheduled for a status conference in September on child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury indicted 68-year-old Richard Howard Craft, of Thornton, this week on charges alleging he distributed, received and possessed child pornography during a period between July 2007 and December 2009.

Craft is a former interim pastor of Family of Christ Presbyterian Church of Greeley.

An affidavit for a search warrant says an undercover FBI special agent saw numerous child pornography files via a publicly available online file-sharing program that were tracked to Craft’s home computer.

Craft’s lawyer, Philip Cherner, declined to comment on the charges Friday.
