(AP) — A 76-year-old former volunteer Boy Scout chaplain has been sentenced to serve 40 years in prison after pleading no contest to sexually assaulting six young men, including a developmentally disabled victim. James Glawson, of Exeter, was sentenced Thursday after pleading no contest to 11 charges. Glawson told the judge in court that prays every day for those he hurt. The state attorney general’s office says Glawson committed multiple acts of sexual assault against five victims beginning in the 1980’s when he served as a volunteer Catholic chaplain for the Boy Scouts and his most recent victim in 2019 was developmentally disabled.last_img
