Trial set to begin for priest accused of sexual abuse

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The trial is set to begin Monday for a local priest, accused of sexually abusing two teens more than 30 years ago.

Reverend James Schook is charged with sodomy.

His trial is slated to begin at 1 p.m.

The 65-year-old has terminal skin cancer, but was deemed fit to stand trial by a state doctor. Schook was indicted in 2011.

Schook is accused of abusing two boys at St. Thomas More Church in Louisville in the 1970's when he was an assistant pastor.
