CLIFTON PARK - A local priest accused of inappropriate conduct with a 15-year-old girl made a court appearance in Clifton Park on Wednesday.

Police say James Michael Taylor, 30, met the girl while he was serving as deacon and youth minister for the Corpus Christi Church in Clifton Park.

Police say Taylor kissed the teenager, called her and sent inappropriate text messages and photos.

The Roman Catholic priest has ties to more than a half-dozen local churches.

He's charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
