Crew Janci LLP is currently representing victims of abuse by New York Scout Leader Alan M. Dean (aka “Alan Miles Dean”).

Alan M. Dean spent many years as a Scout Leader. As a young adult, Dean was involved with Boy Scout Troop 137 out of Marion, New York.  By July of 1965, Alan Dean was serving as Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 137. Alan Dean also participated in the Order of the Arrow.

In 1973, Dean pleaded guilty to criminal sexual abuse charges and was incarcerated in Monroe County Jail in Rochester, New York.

In the late 1970s, Dean was working as a Scout Leader.  While at Camp Babcock-Hovey near Ovid, New York, Dean is alleged to have abused at least one other boy.

Later, Alan M. Dean was a Scout Leader for Troop 130 and Explorer Post 137 in Marion, New York in the early 1980s. Troop 130 and Explorer Post 137 were sponsored by the United Church of Marion.  Dean continued in that position until late 1984, when Den was prosecuted on criminal charges of sodomy for sexually abusing a 12-year-old boy.

The Boy Scouts of America created a secret “perversion file” on Alan Dean in June of 1985.
