TIM CONLON TO TAKE ON HIGH-PROFILE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA MOLESTATION LAWSUIT

Attorney Tim Conlon of TJC ESQ will serve as co-counsel in a class-action lawsuit brought against the Boy Scouts of America and its Fairfield chapter on behalf of 17 former scouts and 2 women who claim to have been repeatedly molested by a former Scoutmaster from 1963 to 1975. The abuser, Ridgefield man Donald Dennis, allegedly used his status as a scout leader to force scouts into engaging in oral and anal sex - in the case of one of the plaintiffs, occurring more than 1,000 times. Dennis, who was an auxiliary Connecticut state trooper during the time and would frequently wear his uniform to meetings, reportedly used any opportunity he had alone with the children to carry out the sexual assaults. Dennis died in 2013.

It would appear that a loophole in the law has allowed accused teachers and administrators to avoid all charges and investigations by resigning upon the creation of the allegations. With no record of the allegation outside the school, the accused person could go on to find another teaching career elsewhere without a hitch.
