A Roman Catholic priest who worked briefly in Auburn was charged Friday with a sex crime in Steuben County, police said.
The Rev. Eugene G. Emo, 60, of Webster was charged with second-degree sexual abuse, state police said.
Emo was charged in a case of sexual contact that involved "an adult male child who is incapable of consenting due to a mental incapacity," according to a state police news release.
Emo worked part time as chaplain for Mercy Health and Rehabilitation Center, a long-term care facility in Auburn. He was there from October to December 1994, according to the Diocese of Rochester.
In January 1995, Emo went to work part time for the Veterans Administration Hospital in Canandaigua. He became a full-time chaplain there in June.
Emo was placed on administrative leave by Bishop Matthew H. Clark Jan. 31, after the bishop was notified that an incident had taken place at Emo's home in Steuben County, according to a news release from the diocese. That same day, Emo resigned as a veterans chaplain.
Administrative leave means that although Emo remains a priest, he cannot perform priestly functions.
State police said the Ontario County district attorney's office is working with police investigators. The investigation involves the same suspect and victim, but an instance of abuse that may have occurred in Ontario County, police said.
