A former Boy Scout leader from Nashville, Tennessee has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for sexually abusing boy victims all between the ages of 11 and 14 over a period of several years.
Darrell Fisher, 45, abused many of the boys for over two years and some he abused for as long as five, according to Fox17 Nashville. When he was arrested in 2016, police found harnesses, electrical shocking devices and chastity belts, WKRN reports.
Fisher was also accused of wearing diapers, which he soiled, before making the boys “change” him.
During his sentencing hearing, Fisher's victims testified. They each bravely shared their stories of abuse by the hands of the former Boy Scout leader.
Larry Brown, a Scout Executive with the Middle Tennessee Council, put out a statement on the case, which read, “The behavior included in these allegations is abhorrent and runs counter to everything for which the Boy Scouts of America stands. Upon learning of the allegations we took immediate action to remove this individual and preclude him from any further participation in the Scouting program.”
