Former Camdenton Schools Janitor Sentenced for Sex Crimes

An ex-janitor for the Camdenton School District has been sentenced after being found guilty in April.

Jesse Devore was sentenced this week to 20 years in prison on six counts of sexual misconduct after a student witnesses him performing crude actions on himself in a school bathroom.

Court documents say the incident occurred in 2019 at an elementary school within the Camdenton R-III School District. Prosecutors also cited a 2013 incident involving Devore at a local Walmart.

The case has caused a flurry of lawsuits against the school district that have been settled in recent years.

Attorney’s for Devore say they plan to appeal the conviction.
