A priest will spend up to 23 months in jail after he was caught sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy in Dunmore last year.

Fr. Jeffrey Paulish was sentenced at the Lackawanna County Courthouse to between eight and 23 months in jail.

He pleaded guilty back in January to corrupting a minor.

Fr. Paulish served in several parishes in the Diocese of Scranton, most recently at Prince of Peace in Old Forge.

He was taken to jail after being sentenced.
