BAD BOY SCOUTING

Boy Scouts Leader Accused Of Coercing Teens Into Late Night, Boozed-Fueled Threesome

11869476-largeThree men gave graphic testimony in a Morristown, New Jersey Court on Monday, alleging they were sexually abused by former Morris County Boy Scout leader, Stephen Corcoran (pictured), when they were teenagers.

The first alleged victim testified that his abuse began in the 1990s when he was just 10. One day, Corcoran invited him over to his house. When he got there, the Scout leader offered him a beer then showed him pornography on his computer.

“This is what kids do in Europe,” Corcoran allegedly said. “It’s okay.”

The alleged victim told the court that the abuse continued for seven more years, often late at night during overnight camping trips. Corcoran would lead him to dark, secluded locations — including the woods along the banks of the Delaware River, on top of a boat at West Point, and in a hotel room whilst on a ski trip to Vermont — then offer him alcohol and engage in sex acts with the boy.

A second alleged victim testified that his abuse began when he was 13. He was invited over to Corcoran’s house to work on a merit badge. While there, the Scout leader showed him pornography. The first time, the man said, Corcoran didn’t touch him. But the second time, he performed oral sex on him. The man testified that he never told anybody about the abuse because he was afraid “They’d think I was gay or stupid for masturbating with a Scout leader.”

A third alleged victim told the court his sexual activities with Corcoran began in 1999 when he was 17. One day he asked Corcoran to help fix his computer. Corcoran noticed that he had gay porn stored on it.

“Nobody knew I was gay yet,” the man testified. “He reassured me it was okay. He said ‘it’s okay if you’re bisexual. I’m bisexual too.’ “

Then, he said, Corcoran unzipped his pants and began pleasuring himself.

A few months later, Corcoran invited him over to his house for “a few drinks” and a threesome with another boy.

“That freaked me out,” he said.

The man described the experience as “frightening,” and “very naughty,” but admitted that he also kind of enjoyed it.

After he turned 18, the alleged victim testified, he continued having sex with Corcoran and even invited him to several of his birthday parties until well into his late 20s. He said he agreed to testify against him because he believes this sort of things happens much more often than is reported within the Boy Scouts of America organization.

“It’s clear that this is a widespread thing that’s happening,” the man said.

Corcoran now faces four counts of aggravated sexual assault and five counts of sexual assault, along with 11 counts of child endangerment.
