National News: Chicago-Area Boy Scouts Sued Over Sexual Abuse

Posted on in In the News


Fifteen men filed a lawsuit Wednesday charging the Boy Scouts allowed a Chicago teacher to serve as a leader while he was molesting children.

The plaintiffs say they were in Thomas Hacker's troop in Oak Lawn, Ill., and suffered sexual abuse when they were 10 to 12 years old, WBBM-TV, Chicago, reported. Hacker, now 76, was arrested in 1988 and is serving a 100-year prison term.
