Man, now 94, faces hearing in decades-old Boy Scout sex case

CBS

DETROIT -- Wyoming authorities are asking Michigan to extradite a 94-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting three children at Boy Scouts camp and during trips dating back to the 1960s, reports CBS affiliate WWJ.

William Bricker, who was also a teacher in Illinois, is scheduled for an extradition hearing in Traverse City, Mich., where he currently resides.

Three former campers told investigators in Teton County, Wyo., that they were assaulted at the Teton Valley Ranch Camp.

Court documents show Bricker was a counselor at the camp.

Investigators received information in February that included a Boy Scout letter and several pages of notes indicating "allegations with multiple victims of sexual assault and immoral and indecent acts with children in the late 1960s or early 1970s," according to an affidavit filed last month in Teton County Circuit Court.

At some point, two of the former campers were contacted as adults by the Boy Scouts to see if they were interested in getting involved with the organization. Both declined.

One former scout told the organization he had been molested by his scoutmaster in 1962 when he was 13. He said he told a scout leader in the late 1960s about the alleged incidents.

The other former scout told police he was sexually assaulted at least six times during the summer of 1985. A third told investigators she was about 14 years old when she was kissed and fondled during an overnight camping trip in Grand Teton National Park.

Calls for comment from attorneys representing Bricker were not immediately returned.
