Ex-pastor pleads guilty to pornography charge

Lawrence Kilbourn, the former pastor of Forest Hills United Methodist Church, has pleaded guilty in federal court to using a computer to receive child pornography.

Kilbourn, 43, stepped down from his church post last October after confessing to a "sexual addiction."

Kilbourn pleaded guilty Wednesday without reaching an agreement that might include recommendations from prosecutors about a possible sentence. He is free on $80,000 bail, with conditions that include he have no contact with minors, that he not use a computer and that he be subject to electronic monitoring. No sentencing date has yet been set.
