A Berkeley Sea Scout leader was found guilty of two counts of child molestation and will serve six years in prison under a plea deal reached Monday with the Alameda County district attorney's office.
Eugene Evans, who was originally charged with 18 felony counts, including child molestation and showing pornographic materials to young boys, pleaded no contest to two charges Monday that will allow the victims to avoid an emotional hearing.
Evans, who once battled the Boy Scouts of America all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court for its policy of excluding gays and atheists, declined to comment after he agreed to the plea deal in front of Alameda County Superior Court Judge Sandra Bean.
