Daryl Lemasters, former Scout leader, gets 180 years in prison for child sex crimes

  • Platte County Prosecutor
  • Lemasters will likely spend his life in prison.

Daryl Lemasters, a Platte City businessman who spent 10 years as a Cub Scout leader, received the maximum sentence of 180 years in state prison after a jury convicted him of sex abuse against minors.

Lemasters ran Copy Masters in Platte City and led Cub Scout Troop 1028. That all came to a halt when two girls, ages 9 and 11 at the time, reported to authorities that Lemasters touched them inappropriately and videotaped them naked at various times over a four-year period.

A subsequent investigation found evidence, such as videotapes, that confirmed their allegations.
