A sex offender from Rome who faced new charges in a child sex abuse case has pleaded guilty, according to the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office.
Donald Cadrette, 67, pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted sexual assault Thursday in Oneida County Court.
Back in June, Cadrette was charged with felony first-degree sexual abuse after he allegedly had sexual contact with a child less than 11 years old in Rome in 2016 and 2017.
Cadrette was already 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 is scheduled to be sentenced in Oneida County Court on Oct. 11.
