Priest headed to court to seek shock probation

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A priest serving a 15-year-prison sentence for sexually abusing a teenage boy in the 1970s is set to appear in court with a request to be released from prison.

The Rev. James School is due in Jefferson Circuit Court on Monday at 9:30 a.m. to press for shock probation.

A jury convicted Schook in April of three counts of sodomy and one count of indecent and immoral behavior with an individual.

Schook suffers from terminal cancer. Shock probation allows inmates to be released after serving one to six months of their sentence

Judge Mitch Perry is scheduled to hear the request.
