Thousands Of Boy Scouts May Have Been Sexually Abused
More than 12,000 Boy Scout members were victims of sexual abuse, with nearly 8,000 Boy Scout leaders accused, over a span of seven decades.
This news comes from Janet Warren, an expert on child abuse.
Warren is a professor at the University of Virginia.
She disclosed the reported abuse while testifying as an expert witness in a trial in Minneapolis earlier this year.
Jeff Anderson, an attorney who regularly represents sexual abuse victims, publicly described Warren's findings this week.
