Second Former Scout Sues Over Alleged Abuse
(2011-02-28)
(wkms) - A second former member of Paducah Boy Scout Troop 1 is alleging sexual abuse by a former Scoutmaster. Louisville Attorney Ann Oldfather represents the unnamed 51-year-old. The suit is similar to one Oldfather filed earlier in February on behalf of a 49-year-old man. The Paducah Sun reports the suits allege Scoutmaster Danny Middleton abused the men between 1972 and 1976. They claim the abuse could have been prevented with proper training and safety precautions. Middleton is not named as a defendant. The focus is instead on Boy Scouts of America, the Episcopal Diocese of Kentucky, and Grace Episcopal Church, the charter organization. The defendants have 20 business days to file a response. © Copyright 2014, wkms
