If he is guilty, I can only hope he is used to set an example when sentenced and not given the smack on the hand that they usually get.

Every convicted child molester/abuser should be given the death penalty....5 years if convicted is not enough punishment for a lifetime of healing for the victims....Justice is not fair.

What about the other leaders in the troop? Did they know and let it happen?

This is where we see how important our children really are. If this guy is convicted and only gets 5 years (or anything less than life plus) something is really wrong with our judicial system. Talk is cheap!

Five years.....how can that be an appropriate sentence for this kind of crime?

This is far from the first case of abuse involving the Boy Scouts, nation wide it has become a plague on this institution, much like the Catholic church. Caelful who you trust with your kids.

Only if its found that this behavior was covered up. Doubtful in this case.

Any abuse is inexcusable, and offenders should be dealt with accordingly.

That said, while these incidents are well-publicized in the media and are hot topics of conversation around the water cooler, they are actually extremely rare and should not be viewed as an indictment of the Scouting organization. In fact, a recent study found that boys are LESS likely to encounter sexual abuse while in Scouting activities than they are while in the public at large.

castration alone doesnt work- it just leads to an angrier molester who can still act out and abuse victims in other ways- castrate and leave in prison.

Incorrect, just last month it was revealed widespread abuse within the organization, unfortunately in this country the news media plays down these topics for obviuos reasons leaving most of the public unaware. Heaven forbid the BS's should get bad press.

His actions may appear to reflect poorly on Scouting, but they are NOT representative of the legions of men and women who serve in troops across our nation to help boys develop into responsible young men. Scouters, priests, teachers or whomever abuses children should be seriously punished...but we can and should continue to send our kids to Scouts, church and school.

The man hasn't been tried or convicted. He was my son's Scout leader and all the boys loved him. He gave so much and helped so many. I have never met or heard of a boy who did not like him until now.

Jerry Sandusky was well liked that does not mean he is not a pedophille. Just because he did not molest your son does not mean he did not groom and molested other kids. Boy scouts is a pedophille's playground.

According to the pedophile file (see what i did there?) there are a few more in Charlottesville that need investigating. Scouting is a great thing, but leave it to the liberals to go after the organization as a whole because of the actions of a few as an end run to get rid of it all because of their strong moral stance.

He works on computers, lord only knows what he may put on your computer or look at while he is fixing them.
I'm glad my did die after he worked on it, if I would've known this, he'd never had touched it.
