Pedophiles Identified Throughout Boy Scouts Scoutmasters

sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts of AmericaA new lawsuit filed against the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) alleges substantial sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts of America and over 350 cases of pedophilia within the scoutmaster corps.

The lawsuit is based upon a man from Pennsylvania who claims to have been assaulted “hundreds” of times over a span of four years during the 1970s.  The lawsuit alleges the Boy Scouts of America knew that sexual predators or pedophiles had spread throughout the organization.  Several hundred accusers have come forward recently and civil lawsuits are bringing the truth to light.

The Boy Scouts acknowledged receipt of the lawsuit alleging widespread sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts of America as well as a spreadsheet sent by the attorneys in the case.  The BSA has stated they were “”continuing to manually search paper records at the local level to see if we can identify more information about the additional alleged perpetrators identified in the plaintiff’s attorneys list.”

“We immediately investigated the limited information provided and our efforts have already resulted in approximately 120 reports to the lead law enforcement agency in each state with an accusation of abuse,” responded the BSA. “We have also contacted local law enforcement for all the cases in which enough information was provided to identify the correct agency.”

Boy Scouts Acknowledge Several Pedophiles and Sexual Assault

molestation in the Boy Scouts of AmericaThe Boy Scouts have acknowledged several pedophiles on the list sent by plaintiff’s attorneys had been previously identified by the Boy Scouts as “predators” and were listed on private records maintained by the organization known as “perversion files.”

The BSA has denied hiding the names of identified pedophiles or those accused of sexual assault from law enforcement.  Previously, the BSA have revealed knowledge of or evidence of sexual abuse by more than 13,000 scoutmasters and volunteers.  New evidence suggests there may be tens of thousands more abusers than the BSA has previously admitted.  The Boy Scouts have recently announced they are considering the protections of bankruptcy among mounting lawsuits.
