LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A former Cub Scout leader in suburban Atlanta has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of child molestation in a case authorities say involved more than a dozen children.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://on-ajc.com/13HGJtB) that 50-year-old Harry Brett Taylor of Lawrenceville was given the prison term Thursday in Gwinnett County.

Taylor was arrested in the summer of 2008, after a boy told police Taylor fondled him and photographed him undressing during a swim party and sleepover at the Scout leader’s pool. Police said the gathering wasn’t a Cub Scout event, but the boy knew him because he was a den leader.

Prosecutors said more than a dozen other children later came forward, saying Taylor had sexual contact with them, made them undress for him, or were photographed naked.
