October 22, 2012

Of the 57 case files of disallowed volunteers in Ohio, one focuses on an incident in Wapakoneta by a man who later moved to Cambridge, Ohio.

By order of the Oregon Supreme Court, the Boy Scouts of America released Thursday 14,500 pages of “perversion files” complled between 1959 and 1985. The files were shown to a jury in a 2010 Oregon civil suit that the Scouts lost, and the Oregon Supreme Court ruled the files should be made public. After months of objections and redactions, the Scouts and Clark released them.
