Sex-Abuser Priest Faces New Charge

COHOCTON - The Rev. Eugene Emo, a Catholic priest convicted two years ago of sexually abusing a disabled member of his parish, has been returned to the Steuben County Jail for allegedly having contact with a 16-year-old boy.

Emo, 64, was arrested Aug. 25 and charged with violating the terms of his probation by having contact with a person younger than 18, said Joyce Austin, a spokeswoman for the Steuben County District Attorney's Office.

Emo, who is being held without bail pending a 1:30 p.m. hearing on Sept. 9 in Steuben County Court, told police that the 16-year-old was his employee, Austin said.

Emo was sentenced in May 1997 to six months in the Steuben County Jail and five years' probation after he pleaded guilty to molesting a 30-year-old disabled man at Emo's family home in Cohocton.

Emo, who has remained on administrative leave from the Diocese of Rochester since his arrest, was ordained in 1961 and has served at several churches in Rochester and the Finger Lakes region.

He was the parish priest at St. Januarius Church in Naples from 1987 until 1993, when he resigned amid allegations of sexual improprieties.

Emo also served during the 1990s as a chaplain at the Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Canandaigua.
