Boy Scout Sexual Abuse
The Boy Scouts of America’s website states that its programs and activities allow children to:
- Provide service to others
- Build self-confidence
- Reinforce ethical standards
- Try new things
As a parent, you never expected your child to encounter sexual abuse within this organization. Unfortunately, many Boy Scout members have experienced sexual abuse during their time in scouting — something that destroys a child’s self-confidence and goes against all of society’s ethical standards.
At Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C., located in Philadelphia, we can help you take a stand against acts of abuse that threatened your child’s development and wellbeing.
A HISTORY OF COVER UPS
For decades, the Boy Scouts of America hid alleged acts of child sexual abuse by scoutmasters from the public’s view. These scoutmasters and troop leaders were either quietly dismissed or allowed to continue in the same position without repercussion. They should have been turned into the authorities.
Only recently has light been shed on the magnitude of sexual abuse within the organization. Sexual abuse, however, continues despite the new public awareness, and more and more children are having their lives changed by abusive adults.
