Sarasota Lawsuit Calls For Release Of Boy Scout Sexual Abuse Complaints

Sarasota Lawsuit Calls For Release Of Boy Scout Sexual Abuse Complaints

SARASOTA, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Sarasota attorney Damian Mallard represents three Bay Area boys who say they were molested several years ago by teen scout leaders while they were on a scouting camping trip. 

And he says the Boy Scouts of America were already aware of complaints of sexual abuse among scouts, but didn't reveal that information.

Mallard is now calling on the BSA to release so-called "Perversion Files", not only as part of these lawsuits, but to bring to light circumstances that Mallard believes can help the organization prevent future abuse.

The lawsuits are expected to go to trial next year.
