Syracuse (WSYR-TV/WIVT) - A former priest in the Syracuse Diocese was arraigned on child pornography charges on Wednesday, the Onondaga County District Attorney's Office says.

Father Robert Ours was arraigned on a single count of possession of child pornography, a class E felony.

The Syracuse Diocese said Father Ours retired in 2012.

He mostly served in the Binghamton area at Seton Catholic Central.

Diocesan officials say they contacted the District Attorney's office when they learned of Father Ours' actions.

They say the DA's office conducted its own investigation into the matter.
