Sentencing delayed for former Kanakuk employee on sex charge

The sentencing for former Kanakuk counselor Lee Bradberry, 23, Auburn, Ala. originally scheduled for today in Taney County Circuit Court, has been postponed until Feb. 21.

This is the second time the sentencing has been pushed back. Bradberry, who pleaded guilty in September to four felony sexual misconduct charges involving underage boys, had originally been set to be sentenced in December.

Bradberry reportedly will likely be sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Bradberry is the second former Kanakuk employee to plead guilty to felony sex charges. Former camp director Pete Newman is serving two life sentences. Kanakuk, its CEO Joe White, and Newman are being sued in U. S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas by the family of one of Newman's sexual abuse victims, while another lawsuit was filed against Kanakuk and Newman in Taney County.
