Sexual Abuse and Harassment in Boy Scouts

For over one hundred years, children have joined the Boy Scouts of America to learn new skills, build friendships and serve their communities. Troop leaders play a crucial role in the Scouts: through their example and guidance, these adults help foster morality, competence and confidence in their young charges. But the recent release of Boy Scouts files reveals that not only did many of the organization’s volunteers fail in these endeavors – they grievously harmed children. According to the Scouts’ own records, 12,254 Boy Scouts were sexually abused between 1944 and 2016. The number of perpetrators removed from the Scouts during these years totaled 7,819. And evidence suggests that these numbers grossly underrepresent the number of sexual predators and their victims in the Boy Scouts.

While the Boy Scouts of America claim to believe and support sexual abuse survivors, their actions suggest otherwise. The organization appears more interested in protecting its reputation than addressing its negligence and helping survivors. Further, the Boy Scouts failure disclose suspected sexual abuse to the proper authorities put children and communities at risk.

If you or someone you know has been sexually abuse by someone in the Boy Scouts, contact us today for a free consultation. Our attorneys are committed to holding the Boy Scouts accountable for the harm their predatory leaders inflicted upon thousands of boys.
