Additional charges have been filed against a former St. Paul pastor who is accused of abusing two young boys.

According to the Ramsey County Attorney's Office, Curtis Carl Wehmeyer was charged with 15 counts of possession of child pornography.

After conducting a forensic exam on a seized laptop, investigators found a number of “still images and video clips depicting sex acts involving prepubescent males”.

Wehmeyer was previously charged with criminal sexual conduct after he was accused of molesting one boy and exposing himself to another.

A criminal complaint says Wehmeyer was the parish priest at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament. He was removed in June after church officials learned of the allegations.

The complaint says a boy told authorities Wehmeyer abused him throughout summer 2010, when he was 12. He said Wehmeyer took him to a camper trailer on church grounds and touched him inappropriately while showing him pornography.

The complaint says Wehmeyer also exposed himself to the boy's older brother, who was 15.

St. Paul Police encourage anyone who believes they may be a victim of sex abuse to call 651-266-8685.
