Jefferson City, Mo. – Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster today said a former Fredericktown Police Captain and Boy Scout leader has been sentenced to three consecutive life sentences plus 22 years in a case involving the sexual abuse of minors. Attorney General Koster and Assistant Attorney General Susan Boresi represented the state in the sentencing phase of the case against Kenneth D. Tomlinson II. Tomlinson pled guilty to 22 counts last November.
“It is tragic and unfathomable that a person in a position of trust and influence, especially trust and influence over minor children, would take personal advantage and would abuse that trust,” Koster said. “While there is no way to give back what was lost to the victims and their family members, I hope they find some comfort in the fact that justice has been served.”
Today’s sentencing was in front of the Honorable Ted House in St. Charles County.
