Rev. William Paulish pleads guilty

Rev. William Jeffrey Paulish pleads guilty to corruption of minors. Paulish faces seven years in prison.
The Rev. William Jeffrey Paulish, 57, of Blakely, entered the plea before Lackawanna County Judge Michael Barrasse. He was arrested in September, after police found him and the teen in his car in the parking lot at Penn State Worthington Scranton campus.
The teenager, who wasn't wearing pants when police arrived, later told officials at the Children's Advocacy Center of Northeast Pennsylvania he performed oral sex on The Rev. Paulish.
