ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. -- A Cook County judge set bail at $175,000 for a Catholic priest who is facing child pornography charges.

He is charged with reproduction of child pornography and felony possession of child pornography.
He is an associate pastor at the Mission San Juan Diego Catholic church in Arlington Heights.
