 KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas priest has been charged with one count of possessing child pornography.
 
 The Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas, said in a news release Thursday that it reported Christopher Rossman to authorities in September 2016 after learning he had accessed inappropriate content on his computer. Rossman was suspended from the ministry at that time.
 
The archdiocese said it received information that an FBI investigation resulted in the charge being filed.
 
At the time, Rossman was pastor at Roman Catholic churches in Baldwin City and Lapeer. He previously worked at churches in Olathe, Topeka, Holton, Mayetta and Potawatomi Reservation.
 
The Kansas City Star reports Rossman's attorney, Scott Toth, said it was too early to comment on the case.
