A Louisville Catholic priest with terminal cancer is scheduled to go on trial next year to face charges he sexually abused two boys in the 1970s.
Attorneys had delayed the trial in May because doctors said there was a possibility Rev. James Schook may not live to the end of this year.
On Monday attorneys agreed on a June 24 trial date for Schook to face seven counts of sodomy. Schook was indicted on those charges in June 2011. He is out of jail on a $10,000 bond.
Jefferson County Commonwealth's Attorney John Balliet said after a brief hearing Monday that he had spoken with a doctor who said it's possible Schook could live for several more years. Balliet said he decided to go forward and seek a trial date.
