A former Germantown youth pastor was sentenced to 10 years of probation on Monday for sexually abusing an altar boy in 2001 and 2002.
The Rev. Aaron Joseph Cote, 58, who was a pastor at Mother Seton Parish at the time of the abuse, was found guilty of third-degree sex offense in July. He is on administrative leave and cannot engage in ministry, according to a statement from the religious order to which he belongs, the Dominican Fathers and Brothers.
Cote agreed to complete counseling and serve 10 years' probation, five of it supervised, in New York. Cote must also register as a sex offender, complete sex offender treatment and not work or have any unsupervised contact with minors, according to the sentence imposed Monday by Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Louise G. Scrivener.
