A sentencing date hasn't been set for the 72-year-old priest, who will remain at Glenmary until sentencing. The judge ordered him to be monitored electronically and said he couldn't leave except for medical appointments and meetings with his attorney, Assistant U.S. Attorney Christy Muncy said. The priest isn't allowed any contact with children, Muncy said.
Asked about the difficulty of prosecuting a 22-year-old case, Muncy said that "the facts don't change."
Muncy said she hopes the verdict will encourage any victims of this type of abuse to report it to authorities no matter when the abuse occurred.
The Glenmary religious order, which isn't associated with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, is a society of priests and brothers who dedicate themselves to establishing a Catholic presence in rural areas and small towns. The group removed Poandl from ministerial duties last year.
The order's president, the Rev. Chet Artysiewicz, said in a statement posted on its website that he respects and accepts the jury's decision.
"My heart breaks for all those who have been impacted by this tragic situation," he said.
