A 56-year-old Catholic priest in Pennsylvania has been charged with molesting a 15-year-old boy after cops say he was caught in the act.
Father W. Jeffrey Paulish was found with the boy — who was wearing no pants — in a car on the Penn State University campus last Thursday.
Initially, Father Paulish told police he was walking around the campus working on his homily and met the boy by chance.
That the boy was in emotional distress and needed counseling which he was offering the boy, only to later admit that he had placed an advertisement on the “casual encounters” section of Craigslist website and the two agreed to meet. He also admitted to looking at male P0rnography.
Father Paulish was immediately removed from his assignment by the church, and his faculties to exercise priestly ministry were suspended.
He’s currently facing charges of indecent contact with a minor, indecent exposure and corruption of a minor.
