ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — A former Albemarle County Boy Scout troop leader pleaded guilty Wednesday to sexually abusing children.

The Roanoke Times reports David Watkins plead guilty to 36 felony sex crimes after taking a plea deal that calls for him to serve at least 30 years and five months in prison.

According to the paper, Watkins still faces a maximum sentence of 360 years in prison and $90,000 in fines.

Watkins was arrested in 2012, after a victim told police that he had been abused by Watkins for years.
