OLD GREENWICH - An Old Greenwich Church minister is accused of collecting child pornography tonight.

Police say 59-year-old Simeon Stefanidakis, of Albertson Memorial Church of Spiritualism, possessed and transported child pornography while working as a minister at a different church in Boston a few years ago.

Those who worked alongside of Stefanidakis in Boston say he is one of the kindest people they've ever met.

Stefanidakis will be transported to Boston to face charges and could face up to 20 years behind bars.

The church's board says he has been suspended from all work at the church for now.
