Nice Legs, Principal Schum

NOVEMBER 1--Meet Paul Schum.

The Kentucky man, a Catholic school principal, is facing a prostitution charge after Louisville police found him dressed like a woman and loitering in an alley Tuesday night.

According to a criminal citation, a copy of which you'll find here, Schum, 50, was wearing fishnet stockings, fake breasts, and 'all black leather' when officers discovered him 'loitering in high drug trafficking and prostitution area.' The citation notes that Schum, who heads Bethlehem High School, had 'no reason for why he was in alley...dressed up in women's leather other than for prostitution.'

Schum, now on paid leave from his school post, is due in court on November 27 to answer a misdemeanor charge of loitering for the intent of prostitution. (2 pages)
