A convicted child molester accused last year of abusing a 5-year-old boy faces another 516 charges, detectives said Wednesday.

Gael Francis O'Riorden, 72, was out on $125,000 bond when he was arrested on 516 charges of possession of photographs of sexual performances by a child and one charge of promoting the sexual performance of a child. He was being held in the Broward County Jail on Thursday night on $5.16 million bond

"The taskforce members are looking into whether any of those pictures have local kids," Graf said.

Robinson struggled a few moments to calculate what O'Riorden's bond would be with 516 charges. She settled on $10,000 for each of them, a total of $5.16 million

O'Riorden was convicted in 1990 of child molestation and spent four years in prison, court records show. The 2004 case is scheduled to go to trial May 2, but could be delayed because O'Riorden recently tried to fire his second attorney.
