Former Binghamton Priest Pleads Guilty to Child Porn Charges
August 26, 2014
A former priest who spent three decades in the Binghamton area, including a 19-year career at Seton Catholic Central pled guilty to six counts of child pornography Tuesday.
The Syracuse Diocese says Father Robert Ours was at Seton Catholic from 1992-2011.
He has been inactive from the diocese since 2011. According to the Syracuse Diocese Ours also served at St. Vincent's in Binghamton, St. John's the Evangelist, Our Lady of Good Counsel, and St. Rita's until 2011 prior to its closing.
In a statement the diocese says it fully cooperated with the Onondaga County district attorney's office and that it is deeply saddened by the situation.
