( Cincinnati ) - A former priest will spend the next 7 and a half years in federal prison for taking an underage boy across state lines for sex.

A federal jury convicted Robert Poandl last fall of taking the 10-year-old to Spencer, West Virginia, in 1991. Poandl was a priest with the Fairfield-based Glenmary Home Missioners. 

Poandl's attorney had been asking for leniency since his client has cancer.
