Port Byron man caught by the FBI soliciting a minor pleads guilty

A Port Byron man will likely serve two years in prison for trying to engage in oral sex with someone he believed to be younger than 15.

Richard McAllaster, 37, of 10518 Duck Lake Road, Port Byron, pleaded guilty Thursday in Cayuga County Court to one count of second-degree attempted criminal sex act, a class E felony.
