They caught him just in time, since now he could have been a Boy Scout leader!

Child molesters can be boyscout leaders "now"? Straight folks have always been boy scout leaders. What are you talking about?

Michael, please read the article before posting, he molested an innocent little girl. Your comment about the Boy Scouts makes no sense.

I grew up having sleepovers in this mans house. This is so scary and I'm so thankful he's being punished.
