A former priest accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old nearly 40 years ago enters a guilty plea in Daviess County Court.

Louis Piskula pleaded guilty to first degree sexual abuse this afternoon.  He was originally charged with sexual abuse and sodomy.  Prosecutors say the crime happened in the late 1970s while Piskula was a priest at an Owensboro church.  He's scheduled to be sentenced on August 6th.  Prosecutors say they're recommending Piskula be sentenced to five years in prison and requiring him to register as a sex offender.
