IDAHO – Four former Idaho boy scouts are suing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Boy Scouts of America because they say neither group did enough to prevent them from being sexually abused as children.

The attorneys for the four men with Idaho ties make the case that both organizations could have done more to prevent sexual abuse of young boy scouts, and they are taking that case to a United States District Court.

Attorney Gilion Dumas said the groups had knowledge of child predators lurking in scouting troops in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

“The boy scouts and the LDS church need to be held responsible, because they’re the ones who had that information and intentionally chose to keep it secret,” she said. “Because of the information that they had, that they chose to keep secret from the people who actually needed it.”
