Boy Scouts of America leader accused of sexually abusing a child
LEBANON, Ore. —
A Lebanon Boy Scouts of America leader is accused of sexually abusing a minor, though police say there's no evidence the crime took place during a Boy Scout-affiliated event.
Police say Douglas James Young Jr. was arrested Tuesday on five counts of sex abuse in the first degree and four counts of sex abuse in the second degree. The investigation into the alleged crime began Feb. 28, 2017 when it was reported Young had inappropriate contact with a child.
Additional victims, who are now adults, were contacted and interviewed by police. There could be more victims who have not come forward. Police say they've had contact with Young in the past over alleged sexual abuse, but no charges were filed.
If you have any information, call police.
