Wisconsin Men Identified in Boy Scout Files include Rock County

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Thousands of pages from the Boy Scouts' so-called "perversion files" have been made public, and the files identify 29 Wisconsin men from 21 communities, including Beloit and Janesville in the Stateline..

The files stretch from 1960 to 1984. They detail allegations in West Bend, Green Bay, Mosinee, Menomonie, Shorewood, Eau Claire, Oshkosh, Milwaukee, Marinette, Beloit, Janesville, Seymour, Mondovi, Waukesha, Sheboygan, Elkhart Lake, Appleton, La Crosse, Monroe, Cedarburg and Pewaukee.

The Oregon Supreme Court ordered 14,500 pages of Boy Scout documents released. They show police chiefs, prosecutors, pastors and even Boy Scout leaders shielded scoutmasters and others who allegedly molested children.

The Boy Scouts of America apologized to victims and their families.

Bay-Lakes Council Scout Executive, Mark Logemann, says he's not familiar with any of the local allegations, but work is being done to keep the kids safe.
