Diocesan school superintendent accused of sexual misconduct
CWN - January 13, 2010
The superintendent of Catholic schools in Scranton, Pennsylvania, has been granted a leave of absence, apparently because he was accused of sexual misconduct. Diocesan officials have not confirmed the charges against Joseph Casciano, but acknowledged that “a lay employee” was the subject of a complaint. Casciano guided the Scranton Catholic schools through a bitterly contentious era, in which many schools were closed to ease budget pressures on the diocese.
