Diocese of Metuchen

Woodbridge, NJ: (Jul-02-07) A sexual molestation lawsuit was filed against Mike Cashman, former pastor of St. James Roman Catholic Church in Woodbridge, by two accusers, who spoke up 24 years after the alleged incident took place in 1979. The accusers, a 14-year-old boy and his 10-year-old sister at the time, claimed that the priest sexually molested them while their family attended St. Ambrose Parish in Old Bridge. It has been over five years since the charismatic priest took a leave of absence as pastor of St. James Roman Catholic Church after being accused of sexually abusing the two children. In a settlement reached, though Cashman maintained his innocence, he agreed to sign off on a settlement with the Diocese of Metuchen, awarding the family of the accusers approximately $140,000.
