Former Cumberland County Coach Faces 105 More Sex Charges

A former youth basketball coach and Cumberland County school employee has been charged with 105 more sex crimes.

Fayetteville Police Sgt. Shawn Strepay said in a news release that 50-year-old Rodney Scott was charged after an eighth person came forward.

Scott was charged Tuesday night with 21 counts of statutory sex offense, 21 counts of crimes against nature, 21 counts of taking indecent liberties with a child, 21 counts of child abuse sex act and 21 other sex offenses alleged to have happened in 2012.

Bail on the latest charges is nearly $3.7 million. Total bail on 180 charges now totals more than $21 million.

Police say the alleged sex offenses occurred over at least a 13-year period.

It wasn’t known if he has a lawyer on the latest charges.

    What a shame that law-abiding, tax-paying citizens will have to pay for his upkeep while he is in prison the remainder of his life. This scenario happens every day …. our “warm and fuzzy” society needs to take a look at measures that don’t punish the innocent ….

  2. Mark says:

    I have doubts that anyone can come up with that kind of bail money for him……. I think he just gave up his life on the streets as he knows it………..freedom is free as long as you keep your nose clean…………tuck him away in a jail cell for a very long time.
