HANNIBAL, Mo. — A former Missouri State Court deputy juvenile officer is facing a federal indictment over alleged sex trafficking of minors.
A federal judge has charged Scott F. Burow, 62, of Hannibal with criminal sex trafficking. The indictment alleges that between March 25, 2020 and April 2, 2020, Burow solicited a minor to perform a commercial act.
The indictment alleges that Burow met the victim, a 15-year-old girl, through a dating app. According to the indictment, Burow then picked her up and took her to his home in Hannibal, where he committed sex crimes and videotaped her.
Investigators tracked information about Burow’s dating app and searched his home on August 20, 2020. The prosecution claims they found “numerous explicit photos and videos of women” that appear to have been taken by Burow.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking for help from the community to identify additional potential victims. Anyone with information about Burow is asked to call the FBI’s Kirksville Resident Agency at 660-665-6020.
Burow served more than 30 years as an assistant juvenile clerk at the Missouri State Court, according to the US Department of Justice. The Palmyra Police Department, the Hannibal Police Department, and the FBI all assisted in the case.
