Lawyer Alleges Widespread Sexual Abuse in Boy Scouts

A lawyer who has won several cases against various religious organizations for sexual abuse and the resulting cover-ups has stated that he believes that the ” amount of abuse in the Boy Scouts of America dwarfs that which we’ve seen in the Catholic Church.” The statement by Seattle attorney Timothy Kosnoff was made during an interview with ABC 15 in Phoenix, which can be found by clicking the video above this article. Recently released documents revealed that the organization didn’t alway report abuse to the appropriate authorities and that there are more than 5,000 cases reaching as far back as 1947.
