Jailed California Boy Scout Assistant Troop Leader Faces Sex Abuse Lawsuit

Mt ShastaAlready serving prison time for sexually molesting two minor boys at a party, Dustin Hendrick, an assistant troop leader in Redding, California is now facing a civil sexual abuse lawsuit. Hendrick, along with the national Boy Scouts of America and the local Golden Empire Council of the Boy Scouts are defendants in the civil sexual abuse lawsuit. The abuse occurred in 2010.

According to the Sacramento Sun Times, “The abuse surfaced after John’s dad, a retired sheriff’s deputy, discovered a love letter from Hendrick to his son, who was 15 at the time, while Hendrick was an adult.” The lawsuit also alleges that the Boy Scouts knew that Hendrick had had inappropriate contact with young scouts but did nothing about it.
