One Braintree case of possible sexual abuse by Boy Scout troop leaders and volunteers may be part of the organization's "perversion files" released Thursday to the public.
For decades, the Boy Scouts of America kept the files as a way to keep volunteers suspected of inappopriate sexual behavior away from children. The cases were not shared with parents or police.
The Los Angeles Times has created a list of the cases by year, city, state and troop number. The newspaper's list includes the time period covered by today's release (1965 to 1985), but also other accusations and documents gathered and released in various court cases.
A 1991 case in Braintree involved Troop 138, according to the LA Times. There were also six Boston cases, ranging from 1973 to 2003. None of those or the Braintree case had a name attached. No further information was available.
