Boy Scouts are supposed to learn new things, build things, and help others. While some are doing just that, other boys are suffering harm during their time in the scouts. Unfortunately, some boys in Southwest Florida Boy Scout troops have been abused.

As a Sarasota child abuse attorney, I have seen a disturbing trend in the abuse cases against the Boy Scouts of America. Shockingly, boys are being abused by other boys. And worse yet, the Boy Scouts of America has kept records of these incidents without releasing this information to families. These written records of scout-on-scout abuse have become known as the perversion files. Although it is well-known that these records exist, the Boy Scouts of America has not chosen to disseminate this information to the public.

At Mallard Perez, we represent boys who have been sexually abused in the Boy Scouts. In addition to helping victimized boys and their families seek justice and compensation, we are also doing our part to help get the perversion files released so that other boys do not have to suffer like our clients did.

If your son was a victim of Florida child sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts, we urge you to contact us as soon as possible. Get answers to your legal questions by calling 888-409-3805 for a free initial consultation with an experienced Sarasota child injury lawyer or contact us online at
