Atlanta, GA - Two former Boy Scout leaders in Georgia who were named in court records released in Oregon got convicted of crimes involving children.
WSB-TV reports that Michael Barrett has been in prison since 2010, when he pleaded guilty to aggravated child molestation in an unrelated case in Cobb County. Back in 1973, he was a 21-year-old Scout leader when he was accused of luring three teenagers from a Scout reservation to a motel. He pleaded guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor and spent 12 month in jail.
The records show 72-year-old Thomas Hodges resigned as a scoutmaster in Winder in 1963 following a complaint from the father of a Cub Scout. WSB-TV reported that Hodges was convicted of child molestation in 1992 and served 14 years in prison.
