Robert “Bob” F Damore, Boy Scout New York Sexual Abuse

Robert “Bob” F. D’Amore was a Scout Leader in the Mohegan Lake area of New York in the 1970s.

Crew Janci LLP is representing victims of sexual abuse by Scoutmaster Bob D’Amore in New York.

D’Amore was the Scoutmaster for Troop 284 which served Mohegan Lake, Peekskill, Cortland and the surrounding area of New York.

Troop 284 was sponsored by the Church of the Holy Spirit and was part of the Westchester Putnam Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

In May of 1977, the Boy Scouts opened a “Perversion File” (also called an Ineligible Volunteer file).  The Boy Scouts’ secret file states the D’Amore was removed from Scouting for “homosexual molestation of three scouts registered in his troop.”

ABOUT US: Crew Janci LLP is a law firm dedicated to advocating for victims of sexual abuse.  Our attorneys were part of the victim’s legal team that took the Boy Scouts to trial in 2010 and won a $19.9 Million verdict against the Boy Scouts.  Our case forced the first ever public release of many of the Boy Scouts’ secret files.  Since then, we have represented over 100 victims of abuse in Scouting across the United State.  New York recently enacted a new law — the Child Victims Act — that allows victims of child sexual abuse in the state of New York to bring claims during a one-year “window” period (which opens in August 2019).  Crew Janci LLP has associated with local counsel in New York to represent victims of abuse in Scouting and other youth-serving organizations.  If you or someone you know has been a victim of abuse in Scouting, contact us today for a free confidential consultation.

You are not alone.  We are here to help.
