Ex-Scouts Describe Abuse by Leaders in the Boy Scouts of America
To shed light on the perpetuating crime of leaders in the Boy Scouts of America sexually abusing children, several men with Montana ties stepped forward to share their personal testimonies of Scouting abuse. Through a series of profiles, the Billings Gazette recounted the stories of four ex-Scouts who faced lifelong trauma after being violently abused by Scouting leaders. To seek justice and protect future children in Scouting programs, these men joined with the national legal movement Abused in Scouting (AIS), led by a team of attorneys from across the nation. AIS represents over 1,500 Scouting abuse survivors seeking to hold the BSA accountable for failing to protect children from sex abusers in the organization.
