Former Agency Director Sentenced on Sex Charges

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — A former director of a St. Louis-area children’s service agency has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for sodomizing a foster child who lived with him.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 45-year-old Kevin Thompson of Hazelwood was sentenced Thursday. He was found guilty of 11 counts of second-degree statutory sodomy in August.

The crimes happened in 2009. Prosecutors said Thompson met the 16-year-old boy through Thompson’s work at Good Shepherd Children and Family Services in University City. Good Shepherd provides adoption services for older children in foster care.
