LIVINGSTON COUNTY — An Avon foster parent with a 2006 conviction for Sex Abuse now finds himself charged with Raping another minor.
Richard Cassada, 60, is now sitting in a Livingston County Jail cell on $25,000 bail after being charged with the rape of a female under the age of 17.
According to court records, Cassada was convicted in 2006 of Sex Abuse in the Third Degree, a class B misdemeanor, which also satisfied an accompanying felony Rape charge.
Cassada spent 90 days in jail and was ordered to register as a level 2 moderate risk sex offender. At this time it is unclear if his other foster children were living in his home prior to 2006.
Monroe County Judge Joan Kohout handled the 2006 sentencing because both Livingston County Judges were away for mandatory judicial training.
