An arraignment hearing for child pornography charges against the Rev. Rudolph “Rudy” Bullman of Risen Christ Parish was continued Thursday in Flathead District Court.
Bullman, 67, Kalispell, is charged with felony sexual abuse of children after investigators allegedly found pornographic images of children between 12 and 18 years old during a search of his computer. Knowingly possessing such material makes one guilty of sexual abuse of children under Montana law.
He was placed on administrative leave the same day he was interviewed by detectives and has not been participating in the church ministry.
The arraignment hearing was rescheduled for April 19.
