Syracuse, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A former local priest pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.

Robert Ours, 65, admitted in Onondaga County Court to six counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child.

Ours reached a deal with Judge Joseph Fahey. With his guilty plea, he will be sentenced to 10 years of probation and have to register as a sex offender.

Ours -- who became inactive in 2011 because of personal reasons -- was a member of the faculty at Seton Catholic Central and served as an administrator at the former St. Rita's Church in Chenango Forks, which closed in January 2006, according to Action News archives.

He was also an associate pastor at Holy Family in Endwell.

Ours is a resident of Onondaga County.
