WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A former leader of a Connecticut Boy Scout troop has been charged with sexually molesting three boys while on scouting trips to Massachusetts in the 1990s.

David Kress, of Thompson, Connecticut, was held on $50,000 bail after pleading not guilty Thursday in Worcester Superior Court to seven counts of statutory child rape.

Police tell The Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/1kS4jeN ) the alleged assaults took place at Nichols College in Dudley.

Massachusetts prosecutors say Kress is out on bail for similar allegations in Connecticut.

Prosecutors asked that Kress be held on $100,000 bail because they had trouble finding him.

Kress’ attorney asked for $10,000 bail, saying her client is a Marine veteran who was in a hospital for stress and anxiety-related issues. She says he has strong family ties to New England.
