Local cheerleading business owner facing sex offense charges

KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (WNCT) – A Kill Devil Hills man involved with local cheerleading businesses is facing sex offense charges.

39-year-old Russell Rusty Scherer is facing five counts of taking indecent liberties with children and one count of statutory sexual offense by an adult.

Scherer has lived in the Outer Banks for five to six years. During that time, he has operated businesses that put him in contact with hundreds of minors.

Those businesses include Xcite Cheerleading in Fletcher, Coastal Crush All-Stars in Jarvisburg and Kill Devil Hills, Platinum Cheer in Jarvisburg, Island Star Athletics in Manteo, Outer Banks Sports Club in Nags Head, and Dare County Parks and Rec in Kill Devil Hills.

If you think your child may have been a victim of Scherer, you are asked to contact the Kill Devil Hills Police Department.
