Already Convicted Ex-Scout Leader Faces More Charges

A former Connecticut Boy Scout leader already behind bars in Massachusetts for child rape is back in Connecticut to face related charges.

The Norwich Bulletin reports that 57-year-old David Kress was transported from a Massachusetts prison to a Connecticut jail recently ahead of a court appearance Feb. 14 to face several counts of employing a minor in an obscene performance.

Kress in December 2016 pleaded guilty to seven counts of child rape for assaulting members of his troop and was sentenced to up to seven years in prison.

Kress was a scout leader in Thompson, Connecticut, but pleaded guilty to assaulting the boys in Massachusetts in the 1990s.

Connecticut police say Kress provided the victims with alcohol and pornography before molesting them.

His lawyer did not respond to a message Sunday.
