NEMO juvenile court officer pleads Guilty to child-sex charge

Justice Department says Scott Burow entered Guilty plea Monday

A Hannibal man, who worked for over 30 years as a deputy juvenile officer in Northeast Missouri, and who was indicted on a Federal sex trafficking charge, has pleaded Guilty to a lesser charge. 

Scott Burow was in US District Court in St. Louis Monday, where he pleaded Guilty to one count of transporting a minor across state lines to engage in sexual behavior. Burow had faced one count of sex trafficking of a minor. He was indicted in May by a Federal Grand Jury, and was a long-time Juvenile officer for the Missouri 10th District Circuit Court, covering Marion, Ralls and Monroe Counties. Burow admitted that he solicited a 15-year old girl, and a ward of the state of Illinois, to engage in a sex act in early April 2020. The indictment says that Burow met the victim through a dating app. He then allegedly picked her up and brought her to his home in Hannibal, where he committed the offenses of statutory rape and statutory sodomy while secretly videotaping her. He then admitted giving her $100, and later dropping her off at a Palmyra hotel. Hannibal police searched Burow's home in August 2020, and say they found “numerous explicit photos and videos of women” that appeared to have been recorded by Burow.

He's being held by U.S. Marshals, and could get up to 20 years in prison when he's sentenced February 3rd.
