Boy Scouts Sexual Abuse

The Boy Scouts of America has known for decades the Scouts has a problem with child predators in the Scouts. Child abusers join the Scouts to gain access to children to sexually abuse. Sadly, for many years, the Scouts knew about this problem and hid it from the public. Often, the Scout leaders failed to report abuse to authorities and covered up allegations to protect the organization’s reputation.

Boy Scouts Kept Abuse Hidden

In 1911, the Scouts began to keep secret, internal files on Scout leaders and volunteers alleged to have abused children. These files are known as the “Ineligible Volunteer Files” or “Perversion Files.” Not until a judge ordered the release of these Scout files did the Scouts release them to the public, which document how child predators infiltrate youth-serving organizations.

At the link below, you can search a database of roughly 5,000 men and women expelled from the Boy Scouts between 1947 and 2005 on suspicion of sexual abuse and view many of their “Perversion Files.”

Ben and Nate took their time in handling my case with compassion and care. I never had to wonder what was going on. They always made sure to include me in each and every decision that needed to be made before they were made. Their entire staff was always very polite and knowledgeable. I cannot say enough kind words about Andreozzi + Foote; they are simply the best!

Handled our case SO well even though it took a long time to settle, and STILL helps us with paperwork related to the settlement account every now and then. They were honest with us from the get-go, worked REALLY hard on our behalf, and always kept in touch with us about what was going on. So pleased.

When you and your child are victims of a horrid crime it’s hard to understand why things are the way they are. Information and answers are what you want, but unfortunately the system doesn’t offer that. Nathaniel has fielded and patiently listened to a broken mother wanting nothing more than for someone to help her understand why she has no answers, and through these phone calls Nathaniel has been very informative, honest and upfront. I would recommend Nathaniel and this firm to anyone who is seeking answers, help and professionalism in a firm when going through such difficult times.
