Case Dropped Against Principal Arrested While In Drag

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped the case against
a former Catholic high school principal who was charged with
loitering for the purpose of prostitution.
Jefferson County Attorney's Office spokesman Bill Patteson told
The Courier-Journal that prosecutors felt the evidence
against 50-year-old Paul Schum of Louisville wasn't strong enough
to take to trial.
Louisville police issued a citation against Schum on the night
before Halloween after allegedly observing him dressed as a woman
hanging around an alley in his car. The neighborhood where he was
observed is known for drug trafficking and prostitution.
Police records indicate Schum was wearing an all black leather
outfit with fishnet stockings and a pair of fake women's breasts.
