April 16 arraignment set for former Kanakuk staffer on felony sex charges

A 9 a.m. Monday, April 16, arraignment has been scheduled in Taney County Circuit Court for Lee Bradberry, 22, Auburn, Ala.

Bradberry is charged with two counts of statutory sodomy, two counts of sexual molestation and single counts of sexual misconduct and attempted statutory sodomy, all involving underage boys who were under his charge as a counselor at Kanakuk Kamps in Branson.

Bradberry is being held in the Taney County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Bradberry is the second Kanakuk staffer to face charges involving underage boys in the past three years. Pete Newman is serving two life sentences after pleading guilty in 2010.

AGAIN!! Where was the camp owner, where were the camp directors, where was the risk management director, what about ALL those rules?!! Did they not take seriously the pain and injury brought to so many these past years by their negligence of their own rules?

Kanakuk Kamp is so proud of all their rules and all the training that takes place with the counselors. This all becomes meaningless if there is no one on camp grounds to enforce the rules. The pain now cuts into more families and another generation. It is a pain that does not go away - ever.

Parents wake up!!
