Boy Scouts of America sex abuse claims


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Just last month, the Boy Scouts of American filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy amid hundreds of sex abuse claims.

At least six Arkansans, including one from Fayetteville, are among those joining the national lawsuit.

The Boy Scouts organization is hoping to compensate the thousands of victims claiming they were harmed by scout leaders decades ago.
