'Monk' on child sex charges.

A CONVICTED US sex offender who posed as a monk to gain the confidence of his victims was charged in California with molesting another teenage boy.

The San Mateo County district attorney's office said Anthony Thomas Falco, pictured, was charged with 19 counts of child molestation.

Falco, 73, was arrested last week in Daly City after police received an anonymous tip.

Nearly a decade ago, Falco was convicted of molesting two boys while posing as a Franciscan monk. He admitted molesting one of the boys while on a religious pilgrimage to Bosnia.
