LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) — Jury selection began on Monday afternoon in the sexual abuse trial of a former Louisville priest.
Father James Schook is charged with several counts of sodomy.
Police said he sexually abused two boys back in the 1970s. He was ruled competent to stand trial last year, even though his attorneys had argued that he was terminally ill and too sick to stand trial.
The start of Schook’s trial has been delayed several times.
WHAS11's Alex Schuman will have more coming up at 5 p.m.
