A registered sex offender from Rome is facing new charges after he allegedly sexually abused a child, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office’s Chief Deputy Joseph Lisi, director of the Oneida County Child Advocacy Center.

Donald Cadrette, 67, is charged with felony first-degree sexual abuse. According to Lisi, Cadrette allegedly had sexual contact with a female child less than 11 years old in Rome in 2016 and 2017.

Cadrette is a Level 2 registered sex offender, which is considered a “sexually violent offender,” according to the state sex offender registry. He was convicted in 2005 of felony third-degree aggravated sexual abuse, and his victim was someone he was familiar with.

Cadrette was arraigned in Rome City Court and sent to the Oneida County Jail on $25,000 bail. Lisi says that more charges are pending Grand Jury action in the current case.

An order of protection has been requested for the victim, who has also been offered counseling services through the Child Advocacy Center.
