GULFPORT, Miss.–Over 30 years of molesting Mississippi kids in other states was the confession given this week by William Richard Pryor, a teacher at Bayou View Jr. High School. The first time it happened was in 1973.
The FBI said Thursday that Pryor gave them a confession and detailed what he did with at least eight victims all the way up until 2005.
The FBI affidavit was graphic in describing the sex acts. Pryor’s took his first victim from Gulfport to California, Montana, Colorado, and Oregon on “summer trips”. That victim claimed to have been molested on those trips. He said Pryor would touch his penis and “masturbate him”.
