Timeline for Robert Scott Price:

Born 2/1962SSN Issued in Idaho
80’s Lived in Green River, Wyoming.  (Sweetwater County.)  Checked with Sweetwater County Criminal and Civil courts – no records exist on Price.  We don’t know if he was involved in the Scouts in Wyoming, but he was most likely involved in the LDS church.
Winter of 94 or 95 Price and some Scouts stayed at a cabin in Driggs.  He slept with one of the boys, about 14, and molested him.  (Post Register.)
1994/1995 – 2002 At least 14 more incidents of sex abuse.  Price typically game the boys alcohol, showed them pornography and paid the boys between $50 and $100 for various sex acts.  Price told the boys they would ruin his life if he was turned in and that the boys wouldn’t be able to go on LDS missions if anyone found out.  Several episodes occurred during church-sponsored camping trips for young men.  But LDS Stake President William McKee said many of these trips were not sponsored by the church or the Scouts.  (Post Register.)
2001 Price was arrested and appeared in Court on March 1, 2001.  He was released from jail on a $100,000 bond while deputies investigated his case.  By May 2, 2002, Price had returned to Scouting, and at least one person was “very concerned about Price being around the young boys” at Boy Scout functions.  (Post Register.)
