WNY (WKBW) - An Oregon judge ordered the release of the so-called "Perversion Files," an extensive list of names of former Boy Scout leaders accused of molesting Scouts.

The allegations stretch back to the 1960's, 70's and 80's, and include names from across the U.S., including several here in Western New York.

The report suggests the Boy Scouts of America sometimes allowed men with prior history of molestation to reapply to lead Scouts.
