Female Boy Scout leader charged with having sex with boy in troop

By Nicholas J.C. Pistor




ST. CLAIR COUNTY A female Boy Scout troop leader was charged Tuesday with criminal sexual assault for allegedly having sex with an underage boy.


Sheriff's deputies said the boy's parents arrived at their home outside Lebanon from a shopping trip Sunday to find the woman "engaging in mutual intercourse with their minor son." CRIME STATS



Wendy R. Rogers, 39, of the 1400 block of North Smiley Street in O'Fallon, Ill., was named in one count of criminal sexual assault and held in the county jail in lieu of $100,000 bail. She was arrested at the scene after the parents blocked the door so she could not leave, authorities said.


Police said they were still conducting interviews with members of Troop 35 in O'Fallon to see if there are other victims. A troop statement said that Rogers' membership has been revoked and she won't be allowed to participate in scouting again.


"Other criminal acts of sexual intercourse between the two are being investigated, which possibly occurred at the suspect's residence and during a camping trip in Southern Illinois with the Boy Scouts," said sheriff's Capt. Steve Johnson.


"This betrayal from an adult in a leadership position undermines the entire philosophy of the Boy Scouts and everything they stand for," he said. "The local management of the Boy Scouts has been very cooperative with the investigation."
