A Roman Catholic priest at a northwestern Montana parish is charged with felony sexual abuse of children for allegedly possessing pictures of nude boys on his computer.

The Rev. Rudy Bullman is scheduled to enter a plea at an arraignment hearing on March 29 in District Court in Kalispell. He remains released on his own recognizance and has been on administrative leave from Risen Christ Parish in Kalispell since Dec. 16, when the Roman Catholic Diocese of Helena learned of the investigation.

County Attorney Ed Corrigan says the investigation into Bullman began last October when someone who purchased a Nintendo DS game console from Bullman found it contained photos of nude boys. Court records say a search of his computer turned up similar images.

The charges were filed on Feb. 29.
