FBI charges ASM with producing child porn

Recommended Posts

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A former Scout Master for a Boy Scout Troop in Cleveland Heights has been charged with producing child pornography.

 

Agents of the Cleveland Division of the FBI arrested Dennis Cahill, 62, of Shaker Heights, on November 24, 2010, after executing a search warrant at his home on Huntington Road.

 

According to Scott Wilson of the Cleveland FBI, someone contacted the FBI and tipped them off to Cahill's online activity with minors. Their investigation showed Cahill had enticed a minor over the internet to take and send explicit photographs of himself to Cahill.

 

Wilson says Cahill pretended to be a 16-year-old girl while interacting with the minor.

 

All of Cahill's computer hard-drives were seized from his home by FBI agents when the search warrant was executed.

 

Cahill is currently in the custody of U.S. Marshall's pending further court hearings in U.S. District Court.

 

If found guilty, Cahill faces up to 30 years in prison on the producing child pornography charge.

 

Wilson says the FBI is looking to conduct additional interviews with anyone who may have had regular interactions with Cahill. They are asked to call the Cleveland Office of the FBI at 216-522-1400

news reports vary as to whether he was an ASM or SM. "Former" could have been 40 years ago I guess....(This message has been edited by shrubber)

Yep, we're 35 miles south. I heard some minor tibit mentioned on the 5:00 news. I have the 11:00 news on now. At least LeBron being back in Cleveland is ruling the news.

 

LeBron, thanks for taking the publicity & news. off of the BSA. Now go back to Fla.

 

So far, so good. So far we've made it to the Sports without any mention of this guy. I hope he never managed to get his hands on anyone.

Incorrect, based on that "research" child involved with porn are less likely to be involved with Scoutmaster's than with teachers.

 

Is the Scoutmaster to teacher ration less than or greater than 9,000 to 702,000? Don't know the answer myself but take my two boys and they've had a total of one Scoutmaster and about 150 teachers - a ratio of almost twice as great as 78 to 1. So the propensity a Scoutmaster being involved is actually higher.

Wikipedia says there are 2,912,039 youth members and 1,137,971 adults in 124,425 units all levels of the Boy Scouts of America; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy_Scouts_of_America . The Center for Education Reform indicates there are 55,203,000 K-12 students and 3,178,142 teachers in 132,656 K-12 schools; http://www.edreform.com/Fast_Facts/K12_Facts/ . That sure seems to point me to think that there is a much great chance to run into a bad apple in the education system simply based on the numbers than on anything else. But there is no indication of the gender break down of the teacher numbers versus the adult leader numbers in Scouting. History seems to bear out that pedophilia is more prevalent in males than females; http://www.crisisconnectioninc.org/sexualassault/pedophilia_and_molestation.htm So I guess we are still guessing, huh?
