NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- (WZTV) -- A former Nashville Boy Scouts leader has pleaded guilty to sexual battery charges.

Darrell Fisher pled guilty on Monday to four counts of sexual battery by an authority figure.

A Grand Jury had previously indicted Fisher on 20 criminal counts, linking him to five victims, all between the ages of 11 and 14 years old. That indictment also claimed Fisher tried to bribe the boys into not testifying against him in court.

An alleged victim came forward to Fox 17 News and police in January 2016. Prosecutors said this anonymous teen exposed a predator that had been molesting boys for years.

Fisher led a youth group in Belle Meade doing World War II reenactments where police say he got access to his victims.

Detectives searched his Belle Meade home for chastity belts, harnesses, and electrical shocking devices. One alleged victim previously telling Fox 17 News, “imagine a shock collar that was for a dog, but around your private areas.”
