Roman Catholic Priest Gets Six Months in Jail for Sexual Assault
May 9, 1997
BATH, N.Y. (AP) - A Roman Catholic priest who admitted sexually assaulting a mentally disabled man has been sentenced to six months in jail.
The Rev. Eugene G. Emo, 61, a one-time parish priest and chaplain at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Canandaigua, apologized Monday before his sentencing for the "terrible damage I feel I have done."
Emo, who pleaded guilty to one felony count of first-degree sexual assault, was arrested in February 1996 and charged with molesting the 31-year-old man. At the time, Emo was on limited duty at Blessed Sacrament Church in Rochester because of prior sexual abuse allegations.
He resigned as pastor of St. Januarius Church in Naples and entered a residential treatment center in August 1993 after being accused of inappropriate sexual behavior.
After Emo's arrest, numerous complaints were lodged by former altar boys and other male members of parishes where he had served, but no additional charges were filed because of the statute of limitations on the cases.
