KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A former Kansas City drill team instructor who was charged with molesting two boys has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

The Jackson County prosecutor’s office says 40-year-old Daniel M. Roberson was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to statutory rape, exposing another person to HIV and first-degree child molestation. A grand jury indicted Roberson in February.

Prosecutors dismissed additional charges of attempted sodomy and child molestation.

Roberson had served for several years as a volunteer instructor with a Kansas City drill team and as an independent contractor, leading after-school drill teams and drum corps activities.

Roberson was sentenced to 15 years on the statutory rape charges and 10 years on each of the other two felonies. The sentences were ordered to be served concurrently.
