Reports: Canisteo man pleads guilty to sex with teen boy

According to online reports, filed by Howard B. Owens, a Canisteo man has pleaded guilty to having sex with a 15-year-old boy at a home near the Darien Lake Theme Park over the summer. According to those reports, 55-year-old Joel Bert Shorts of Stewart Street pleaded guilty in court to criminal sex act. Shorts reportedly attended Kingdom Bound at Darien Lake Theme Park as part of a religious group as a chaperone. The guilty plea, we’re told, allowed Shorts to avoid a lengthy prison term in lieu of a likely probation sentence. A judge will determine the final sentence January 10th.
