Tioga (WENY) - Pennsylvania State police have filed more than two dozen
abuse related charges against Father Thomas Shoback, accusing him of abusing
a Tioga county boy over a six year span when the victim was 11 to 17 years
old. The allegations run from 1991 to 1997 when Shoback was at St. Mary's
Parish in Blossburg. Among the charges: Seven counts of Involuntary Deviate
Sexual Intercourse, Five counts of Indecent Assault, 8 counts. You may
remember last November we reported the Scranton Diocese suspended Shoback
when the investigation began.
