Ordained in 1988, Paulish has served at more than a dozen Northeastern Pennsylvania parishes, including assignments in Exeter, Hazleton, Wilkes-Barre and Bear Creek, according to diocesan records.
Security officers at Penn State Worthington Scranton said they discovered Paulish parked in a red Toyota on Thursday night with a 15-year-old boy who wasn't wearing any pants, according to an affidavit.
Paulish allegedly told police under questioning at the Dunmore police station that he arranged the meeting via the online site Craigslist. Paulish also allegedly told police he asked the teen three times whether he was 18 before their conversation turned sexual.

Lackawanna County detectives charged Paulish with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a person under 16, indecent assault of a person under 16, unlawful contact with a minor (sexual offenses), corruption of minors and indecent exposure.

In a letter read to parishioners in Paulish's former parishes on Sunday, Diocese of Scranton Bishop Joseph C.

Statement Regarding Reverend W. Jeffrey Paulish Posted on: 09-20-2013 Posted in: News
On September 20, 2013, the Diocese of Scranton was notified of an incident involving Father W. Jeffrey Paulish, a priest of the Diocese of Scranton, who according to law enforcement officials was discovered in an inappropriate sexual act with a minor. Upon being notified of this incident, the cleric was immediately removed from his assignment and his faculties to exercise priestly ministry were suspended. The Diocese has pledged its cooperation to law enforcement and asks that anyone who may have been sexually abused by Father Paulish or any member of the clergy notify the Lackawanna County District Attorney's Office at (570) 963-6717 or local law enforcement.
In response to this situation, the Most Reverend Joseph C. Bambera, D.D., J.C.L., Bishop of Scranton, expressed his remorse and personal sorrow for the young man who was victimized and his family. In expressing his concern for the Prince of Peace parish community, where Father Paulish most recently served, as well as the faithful and clergy of the Diocese of Scranton, the Bishop said, "I wish to acknowledge how unsettling this is to me personally and to countless others, that yet again a priest has been involved in such inappropriate, immoral and illegal behavior.
