Principal Pleads Not Guilty To Prostitution Charges

A Kentucky high school principal facing prostitution charges says he's not guilty.

Dr. Paul Schum's attorney entered that plea on his behalf today in a Jefferson County courtroom.

Louisville police cited Schum last month after stopping him in alley dressed as a woman.

Schum said he was going to a costume party. Police say he was loitering for prostitution.

Schum is principal at Bethlehem High School in Bardstown. He's now on personal leave.

    Any male Principal should know if you are going to dress up as a woman,do not walk the streets without your wife. If you do it often and not just for Halloween, get some help with what ever kind of disorder you may have. To those who want to put down religions because of what one person does. I hope you are perfect. Love Ya

    Joey, give Bart a break. He can't spell but he sure can drag American flags through the streets while walking on them. Are you going to be able to make it to the Christmas parade tonight in Danville, Bart?

    Folks, the word is "principal". If he only had a brain.

    Come on people, the guy was going to a halloween party. Do u think he is actually going to risk his carrer because he has a fetish with dressing up as a woman and working third street. Teachers and Principles have to put up with so much bullcrap from (some) students who dont care, parents that could care less, and others looking down upon them. Give me a break.

    No Bart from Harrodsburg; he was a Catholic school PRINCIPAL not principle. Your saracasm has been overshadowed by your lack of education.

    No where in this story or any of the past stories does it say he offered himself for sale to ANYONE! This is more than likely a case of over zealous Policing.....again.
