The former head of the Buffalo area’s largest AIDS prevention organization is being accused of molesting three brothers from a South Buffalo family when he was a Catholic priest in the 1970s.

West Seneca resident and author P.A. Kane wrote a first-person essay accusing Ronald Silverio of being the young parish priest who molested him when he was a parishioner of Holy Family Church in South Buffalo.

In separate interviews with The News, Kane’s siblings, Peter and a younger brother who asked not to be identified by name, said that Silverio also molested them.
