Rulings hurt porn case against pastor

Computer evidence cannot be used against a pastor accused of viewing child pornography on his church computer because his privacy was violated, a judge ruled Wednesday.

The judge also suppressed a police interview with the Rev. Eric Michael Young, 48, who was charged in July.

An administrator at Fort Caroline United Methodist Church unlocked Young's office and was investigating computer problems when she allegedly found the pornography. Church officials allowed officers to search Young's office, but the judge said they had no authority to do so.
