A Lackawanna County judge sentenced a suspended Diocese of Scranton priest to eight to 23 months in jail and two years probation for a tryst with a teenage boy.
The Rev. William Jeffrey Paulish, 57, of Blakely, was sentenced today by Judge Michael Barrasse after pleading guilty in January to felony corruption of minors.
Father Paulish was arrested in September after police found him and the 15-year-old in the priest’s car in a parking lot at the Penn State Worthington Scranton campus.
The teenager, who was not wearing any pants when police discovered them, later told officials he performed oral sex on Father Paulish.
