Compensation for victims of sexual abuse by a Scout leader or volunteer
The Boy Scouts of America has long maintained a list of leaders and volunteers it deems ineligible to work with the organization. Many of those ineligible have been listed due to allegations of sexual abuse against children. If you or a loved one have been abused by a Scout leader or volunteer, even if it happened years or decades ago, please contact our attorneys using the confidential form on this page.Survivors of sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts will not be silenced. Our attorneys are listening. If you would like to learn how we use the civil justice system to hold scout leader, volunteers and troops accountable for their abuses, please contact us for a free, private consultation.
AWKO does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The names contained in the list referenced are merely deemed ineligible by the Boy Scouts of America. The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements.
