A Kenosha priest has been sentenced to 30 days in jail after he pleaded guilty to making sexually suggestive phone calls to two teenage girls.

The Rev. Michael Nowak was charged with two misdemeanor counts of unlawful use of a telephone. The 58-year-old was convicted Thursday.

Nowak cried and apologized before he was sentenced. He said he knew he violated the trust of his church, his community, the girls and their families.

Prosecutors said he asked out a 17-year-old girl and encouraged her to wear a low-cut shirt. They said he also asked a 14-year-old if he could perform oral sex on her.

No physical contact was alleged.

Nowak could be sentenced to an additional 30 days if he violates his one-year probation.
