Oakdale police determined that the AOL account belonged to Ward and contacted the FBI, which took over the case. A federal grand jury indicted Ward, a former Catholic priest, in September on two counts of possessing and distributing child pornography using the Internet. After the indictment was unsealed in December, KGO-AM fired him from his job as a talk show host.
His attorney, Doron Weinberg, said the conversations Ward had with the woman consisted only of role playing as part of a book he was researching on hypocrisy.
“There are a lot of things in there that seem pretty outlandish, but they’re completely fabricated, just absolutely fabricated,” Weinberg said. “They have no truth. He thought he was role playing.”
