Witness appeal – abuse by Scout Leader Paul Rogers

I represent a client who has instructed me that they were subjected to sexual abuse by their Scout Leader Paul Rogers in around 1970.  At the time the abuse occurred, Rogers was the Scout Leader of 32nd Huddersfield (Dalton) Scout Group. Around this time, he lived in Rawthorpe and Dalton.

Following complaints of abuse against him, Rogers was arrested and on 15 March 1971 at Leeds Assizes, he was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment for charges relating to indecency with boys after pleading guilty.

The abuse by Rogers has had a profound effect on my client, who is now seeking justice through the civil courts.

I am appealing for witnesses on behalf of my client who may be able to assist with our investigations.  It is possible that there are witnesses who saw acts that concerned them or others who were aware of allegations against Rogers. Your information could be of assistance to our client’s claim.

If you have any information in relation to Rogers that might assist my client in their pursuit of justice, please contact me directly by email: josephcarr@bbkllp.co.uk or by telephone 07879 222 123.
