Asheville Priest Charged With Obstruction In Child Sex Case - Resigned Tuesday

A Western North Carolina Catholic priest has been charged with Obstruction Of Justice.
The Rev. John Schneider was arrested Monday and has since bailed out of jail.
This, after police say he deleted pornographic images off the home computer of his church’s music minister.
That man, Paul Lawrence Berrell, was under investigation and later arrested, last month, on multiple counts of sexual exploitation of a minor—statutory rape—and indecent liberties with a child.
He is currently being held at the Buncombe County Detention Center under a $1.5 million bond.
Rev. Schneider was pastor of St. Eugene Catholic Church since 2005. His bond was set at 10-thousand dollars.
The Diocese of Charlotte tells us he has resigned his position. A replacement will soon be assigned.

He shouldn't have resigned. Clearly he was on the fast track to promotion.
