Boy Scout, church leaders accused of covering up admitted rapist

(WSB-TV) Court documents reveal evidence that church and Boy Scout leaders knew about a sexual abuser and not only allowed him to continue working, but also promoted him.

Fleming Weaver would go on to meet victims who eventually came forward with rape accusations last year.

This is a case that spans several decades in Hall County. It’s a case that accuses the Boy Scouts, a Gainesville church and its leaders of lying to keep a horrific secret.

Documents obtained by Channel 2 Action News include a file that Boy Scouts handed over just last week after a two-year court fight.

“We know now why they didn’t want it (the file) turned over,” attorney Esther Panitch said.
