Boy Scout files on suspected abuse published by The Times
Viewable online: about 1,200 previously unpublished files kept by the Boy Scouts of America on volunteers and employees expelled for suspected sexual abuse.
December 25, 2012

The Times on Tuesday released about 1,200 previously unpublished files kept by the Boy Scouts of America on volunteers and employees expelled for suspected sexual abuse.

The files, which have been redacted of victims' names and other identifying information, were opened from 1985 through 1991. They can be found in a database along with two decades of files released by order of the Oregon Supreme Court in October. The database also contains summary information on about 3,200 additional files opened from 1947 to 2005 that have not been released publicly.


Together, the material in the database represents the most complete accounting of suspected sexual abuse in the Scouts that has been made public. All of the material was obtained as a result of lawsuits against the Scouts by alleged abuse victims or by media organizations. The Boy Scouts kept the files for nearly a century for internal use only, to keep suspected abusers from rejoining.

Top executives did not report suspected Scout abuse cases, files show
Despite lapses, the files indicate that the top officials may have followed policy and violated no laws.

Prison Sees Release Of Former Boy Scouts Safety Director
January 3, 2013

Remember when the Boy Scouts were an innocent group that supported fun and responsibility among boys? A lot has changed in the recent years. The Boy Scouts of America have been known to harbor pedophiles and other undesirables, and have taken a firm stance against the gay community in spite of public outcry. But one man stand apart from the crowd.

Douglas Sovereign Smith Jr., former national director for youth protection, was released from prison last week after nearly seven years. He was in charge of Scout safety in 2005 when police had discovered a collection of child pornography and videos on his home computer.

Smith reenters public life at a time when the Scouts are being watched like a hawk over their past handling of alleged child sex abuse among the leaders. According to Regator, none of Smith’s collected images were of Scouts and he was never accused of molesting children, it was an indication that he supported such things.

Patrick Boyle, author of “Scout’s Honor: Sexual Abuse in America’s Most Trusted Institution,” stated:

“It certainly shows that the people supervising him didn’t have their eyes wide open.”

An Eagle Scout who for 39 years rose through the ranks as a BSA employee, Smith is now a registered sex offender and must report to a probation officer for life. The 69-year-old grandfather can’t be given access to the Internet or possess a smartphone or any device capable of capturing images.
