WELLSBORO - Thomas Shoback, the former Blossburg Roman Catholic priest accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a former altar boy during 1990s, was scheduled to be in Tioga County Court Monday but waived his formal arraignment.

A date for the next court proceeding has not yet been set, said court administrator Nancy Clemens.

Shoback, 60, of Wilkes-Barre, is charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault, endangering the welfare of children and corruption of minors in connection with the alleged assaults against the now 32-year-old victim at St. Mary's Parish Rectory and property Shoback owns in Farmington Township several times between Feb. 20, 1991, and Feb. 20, 1997.
