Shortly after the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) formed in the 1920s, the youth organization began to track cases of suspected sexual abuse and misconduct by its scoutmasters and other adult volunteers. The BSA officially called these documents “ineligible volunteer files” and they later became known as the “perversion files.”

In 2012, the BSA was ordered to release the files from a 1965-1985, and these files showed a staggering number of sexual abuses cases. There were more than 1,200 cases, many of which were never reported to law enforcement. Shockingly, several accused sexual predators continued to serve as volunteers within the organization.

Today, many former scouts in California and across the country who suffered sexual abuse as minors are coming forward. They are seeking to hold both their abusers and Boy Scouts of America accountable for the immense physical and emotional harm which they suffered.

Many survivors of childhood sexual abuse must go through years of therapy and counseling before they can finally come forward. However, when they have done so in the past, they have faced many obstacles, including the statute of limitations on civil claims against their abusers and the organizations which abused them. Thanks to new laws, the statute of limitations is no longer an obstacle.

  • 10 years from the date of the last act, attempted act, or assault with the intent to commit an act, of sexual assault; or

At Oakwood Legal Group, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means you will never pay anything out of pocket unless and until we win your case.
