The victims ages ranged from 11 to 15 years old at the time of the assaults.

Killion who met one of his victims while he served as a scoutmaster with the Boy Scouts of America, will be sentenced once he completes an evaluation required for sex offenders at the Avenel Adult Diagnostic & Treatment Center.
