According to State Police officials, the boy posed for the photos in late-July in front of Love In the Name of Christ, a Christian organization in Everett, the boy’s hometown.
The teenager, who was not identified by cops, was charged yesterday with desecration of a venerated object, a misdemeanor. His case will be handled in juvenile court.
As seen below, one of the photos posted to the teenager’s Facebook page shows him with his crotch in the face of the kneeling statue.
In 2010, a student at a Catholic college in Wilkes-Barre was arrested on a similar desecration charge. The intoxicated 22-year-old was busted after a cop spotted him urinating on a Nativity scene constructed in a city square.
