Former Priest Sentenced on Porn Charges

140418-Stanley-Brittain-405CORVALLIS, Ore. — A former Corvallis priest will spend nearly 11 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to multiple child pornography charges.

Stanley Brittain, 39, also known as Father Isidore at the St. Anne Orthodox Church, pleaded guilty to four counts of encouraging child sex abuse in the first degree.

Albany police arrested him in April, after they found hundreds of explicit pictures and videos of children on his computer.

A woman who lives near the church says she knows a different child sex abuse victim and this case hits close to home.

“That child never recovers. A part of them, their childhood, is gone,” said neighbor Carol Clark.

The church declined to comment, but says Brittain had requested to be removed from the priesthood before he was arrested.
