Former Boy Scout leaders land 10-year prison terms for sex abuse

A court in Ústí nad Labem on Friday sentenced two former Boy Scout leaders, aged 21 and 23, to 10 years in prison for rape, sexual abuse and producing child pornography. The court said the two men abused 39 victims aged between 12 and 18 some of whom were members of the Boy Scout movement. The court also imposed a 10-year-ban on working with children on the men, and ordered them to undergo sex treatment. The Czech Boy Scout organization expelled the men from their ranks shortly after they were arrested in April 2012.
