State lawyers have confirmed that they are considering further charges against the defrocked pedophile priest Oliver O’Grady.

Currently O’Grady is living in Citi Hostel, Charlemont Street, Dublin. He has been remanded on bail for bail for another four weeks awaiting instructions from the Department of Public Prosecution (DPP).

Currently he is accused of the possession of pornographic image on USB keys and a hard drive at Citi Hostel, on December 10 last year. He appeared in court this week and has now been remanded for four week.

Judge Cormac Dunne has confirmed that the 65-year-old defrocked priest could receive further charges.

O’Grady confessed to molesting up to 25 children in the United States. He was charged with the molestation of two brothers between 1978 and 1991.

However, during an interview for the award-winning documentary “Deliver Us From Evil,” he confessed to having molested up to 25 children.

His acts cost the Stockton diocese millions in settlement claims from sexual abuse lawsuits.

In 1993, he went to prison to serve a 14-year-sentence for his crimes. He was released after six years and deported to Ireland.

He will appear in court on February 25 for further direction from the DPP.
