The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is a widely known and very large youth organization in the U.S. Since 1910, the year BSA was founded, over 100 million Americans have been members of the BSA. (Legacy of Honor: The Values and Influences of America’s Eagle Scouts. Townley, A. 2007) Unfortunately, it is an organization that is also very populated by pedophiles looking for opportunities to sexually abuse children, whether it is during sleepovers, camping trips or other scoutmaster organized activities.

In the last 50 years, BSA has been dismissing scoutmasters due to accusations of sexual abuse at the rate of one every three days, according to an internal investigation of BSA. The sexual abuse of children involved in Boy Scouts is no secret, and needs to be dealt with head-on.

If you have been sexually abused by a Boy Scout leader or member, or suspect your child has been, notify law enforcement and learn your legal rights by contacting the Law Offices of Robert M. Wilson. We offer a no-cost, no-obligation and completely private consultation.
