Media outlets all over the country have been reporting on the Boy Scouts of America's (BSA) so called "Perversion Files" – lists of men banned from volunteering with the organization due to allegations of inappropriate behavior which, in most cases involved molesting boys.
The files, which cover the years from 1965 to 1985, list thousands of men, many of whom were never charged with any crime because the BSA kept the records private and never reported the incidents.
The files were released after a lawsuit in Oregon (Lewis vs. Boy Scouts of America, Case No. 0710-11294) resulted in a court order demanding the records be made public.
Of the thousands listed, two men were from the Upper Dublin area, both were accused by Scouts but never charged and their names not released. One man, from Dresher, was a volunteer in the late 1980s. The second, a man from Oreland, was a volunteer in the 1970s.
