Boy Scout Leader Accused of Sexually Assaulting Boy

A Dixon man accused of sexual assault is behind bars tonight, the worst part is he used to be a boy scout leader.

Authorities say 56 year old Charles Bickerstaff sexually assaulted a 16 year old scout at least four times back in July.

Investigators say the boy reported the incidents and detectives found journals in Bickerstaff's home supporting those accusations.

Bickerstaff retired last year as the District Executive for the Blackhawk Area Council of the Boyscouts.
