Prosecutors: Former Boise priest has bond set at $1 million, two victims come forward


A retired Boise Priest is facing eight additional child pornography charges related to his court case.

On Tuesday, Ada County prosecutors tell KBOI 2News that they filed an amended complaint against Rev. Thomas Faucher including seven additional counts of possession of child pornography, one count of distribution of child pornography and an additional count of possession of a controlled substance.

Prosecutors also filed a motion to increase his bond to $1 million.

Also in court, two people have come forward alleging that Faucher molested them in the past. Prosecutors say it’s unclear whether those cases could be prosecuted because of the statute of limitations.

Faucher’s next court appearance is March 23 at 9 a.m.
