Priest in Palermo arrested for paying for sex with minors (ANSA) - Palermo, July 23 - Police arrested a priest in Palermo on Tuesday for allegedly paying for sex with underage prostitutes.

Father Aldo Nuvola, formerly from the Regina Pacis church in Palermo and an ex-religion instructor at one of the city's high schools, allegedly sought young prostitutes in impoverished Palermo neighborhoods. Last year Nuvola was charged with first-degree molestation after repeatedly approaching a 17-year-old and for "obscene acts" after being caught in the middle of "intimate acts" in a car with another man.

Police said that Nuvola planned meetings with boys to have sex in his car or home daily, and was also tracked regularly approaching boys on the street.
