3 MORE ALTAR-BOY LAWSUITS UPSTATE
Three more upstate former altar boys have filed lawsuits alleging they were sexually molested decades ago by the Rev. Albert Cason. Cason was assigned to churches in Owego and Spencerport. The boys alleged they were sexually abused by Cason, although the priest is not named as a defendant in any of the lawsuits. The lawsuits allege that Cason, a co-pastor at St. Patrick's Church in Owego from 1073 to 1985, fondled the plaintiffs and had sex with them. Most were pre-teens or in their early teens when the alleged abuse occurred.
