Again, the victim said he was a student of Pryor's at Bayou View Junior High when the abuse occurred. According to the affidavit, Victim #2 told investigators that "the molestation consisted of Pryor touching his penis and masturbating him." Victim #2 told investigators the molestation happened on at least five separate occasions in Louisiana.

Pryor gave the agents a voluntary statement where to confessed to molesting eight children between the mid-70s and ending in 2005, during his time as a teacher at Bayou View Junior High School.
