TAMPA — After a two-month long investigation, police arrested an online minister Monday for possession of child pornography.

Tampa police say that during a search of his home at 1302 E Columbus Dr. last January, Eric Spandorf, 43, admitted to officers that he downloaded child pornography from the Internet to sell. The search came after his roommate and fellow online minister, Robert Paul Primavera, 54, sold a DVD containing child pornography to an undercover officer, police said.

Officers arrested Primavera on Jan. 22, charging him with 58 counts of possessing child pornography. He remains in the Hillsborough County jail on $60,000 bond.

Spandorf is charged with 66 counts of possessing child pornography and 2 counts of intent to distribute child pornography. He remains in jail on $525,000 bond.

In his online profile on the Tampa-based Biblical Ministries’ Web site, Spandorf labels himself as an associate pastor and youth crisis pastor. A bio on the Web site says Spandorf grew up in New York and moved to Orlando when he was 24, eventually settling in the Tampa area.

“He turned to the church out of feeling despair and disappointment in life and he now is a teen counselor,” Spandorf’s bio said.

Police say Primavera also told them he was a minister for Biblical Ministries, but the Web site contains no information on him.

    yet another sexually repressed “man of the cloth” bringing crisis to our youth. watch out for those whose bios say “He turned to the church out of feeling despair and disappointment in life and he now is a teen counselor.”

    clearly this is more of that “liberal disease”.

    maybe pastor spandorf will be reborn again in prison like bill keller of liveprayer gold for souls.

    Not a surprise at all! This same crap is happening within the Catholic Religion also. All kinds of sexual misconduct that is taking place, many times, until the Catholic Religion can’t cover it up, so they send the religious person to Mexico or some other country to hid them. That is why I’ve given up on religion and created my own called, be an awesome citizen, portray good human morals, and treat all others with respect as you would wish them to treat you.

    Basically Gino, you are following the teachings of Jesus Christ…And not the teachings of the Cult of Paul..(Organized Christianity.)
