We're getting a first look at thousands of secret files on sex abuse allegations in the Boy Scouts of America that were released.
More than one-hundred cases are connected to Wisconsin. In one case from 1980, local scout leaders hushed up claims of abuse against a prominent Milwaukee doctor.
And his case remained secret for more than twenty-years. In another, the boy scouts turned an adult over to police and helped send him to prison.
The Boys Scouts apologized promising to review all its files from 1965 to the present and report suspicions of abuse that have not been reported to law enforcement.
