The former director of Kanakuk Kamp, Peter Daniel "Pete" Newman, has been transferred to the Southeast Correctional Center in Charleston, Missouri, after spending several months at the Fulton Reception and Diagnostic Center.

Newman pleaded guilty in February to two counts of first-degree statutory sodomy, three counts of second-degree statutory sodomy, and three counts of enticement of a child. Newman admitted he betrayed the trust of underage boys and their parents when he held naked bible study in his hot tub, where he performed masturbation with/or on the boys, performed oral sex with the young men and played naked basketball with the youths.

He was sentenced to two life terms plus 30 years in June (life in the state of Missouri is 30 years) for those crimes. Authorities in Colorado, Texas, Alabama, Oklahoma and other states have been watching what happens in this case and have expressed interest in Newman for alleged sex crimes against children.

There is an active warrant for Newman's arrest out of La Plata County, Colorado. There is no word on when Newman will be extradited there to face similar sex charges against a minor.
