Ex-Scout Camp Leader Faces Child Porn Sentence

KALAMAZOO (AP) – The former leader of a popular Boy Scout camp in western Michigan is asking a judge to cap his prison sentence for child pornography at 15 years.

Scott Herrick returns to Kalamazoo federal court Thursday afternoon. The 40-year-old pleaded guilty last year to possessing child pornography and was convicted at trial of secretly videotaping boys in the locker room at a Muskegon YMCA.

Prosecutors say Herrick had more than 100,000 images of child pornography, most involving boys. Computer hard drives and pornographic videos were hidden in a ceiling at the Gerber Boy Scout Camp in Muskegon County. Prosecutors are seeking a 140-year prison sentence for Herrick.

In a letter to the judge, the ex-Marine says he deeply regrets his actions. He’s been in custody since his arrest in 2010.
