Boy Scouts Sued for Child Molestation

Last updated 5 years ago

An anonymous man who says he was molested as a ten-year-old Boy Scout has sued the Boy Scouts of America for failing to keep leaders with a history of child molestation out of its organization.  The man alleges that he was molested by Thomas Hacker, who was convicted of child molestation in 1989. Recently released files show that the Boy Scouts organization was aware of Hacker's pedophilia as early as 1970, but allowed him to continue volunteering as a scoutmaster throughout the 1980s.  The suit alleges a pattern of allowing known molesters to continue as Boy Scout leaders.  The Boy Scouts of America organization has expressed regret for any instances of molestation and says it has taken measures to prevent future occurrences.  McCready, Garcia, & Leet represents victims of neglect and misconduct.  To learn whether we can help you, please call us at (773) 779-9885.
