(Yalobusha County, MS) Former North Mississippi Boy Scout executive William Todd Brewer was sentenced by a judge in Yalobusha County Thursday to 30 years in prison for each of three counts, to be served concurrently.

Brewer faced felony counts for sexual battery, child pornography and fondling.

He entered an Alford plea last month, which is where a defendant can plead guilty without admitting guilt.

“More often than not a defendant and his attorney will review the evidence and they will decide it’s in their best interest to enter a plea on the case than taking it to trail,” said prosecutor John Champion.

“It involved multiple children that were abused and multiple images that were located during the course of the investigation. It’s just doesn’t get much worse than this,” Champion added.

In court, several of the parents of victims were expected to read impact letters. Brewer’s family members were also there to testify on his behalf.

“Under Mississippi law, any sex offense is not eligible for early release,” added Champion.
