FORSYTH, Mo. | A former southwest Missouri camp counselor who was sentenced to 10 years for fondling boys at the camp could be out on probation after serving 120 days of "shock time."

The judge who sentenced 23-year-old Lee Bradberry of Auburn, Ala., on four charges will decide in four months whether he will be released from prison.

Bradberry was sentenced Friday for fondling the boys while they attended the Christian-based Kanakuk Kamp in Branson in 2011.

KYTV reports that Bradberry is the third Kanakuk staff member in the past four years to be charged with sex acts involving boys at the camp.

A former assistant camp director is serving two life sentences plus 30 years for several sex-related convictions.

The case against another camp employee is pending.
