In Minnesota and other States, parents should be able to trust teachers, day care providers, coaches, church leaders and volunteers, and scout leaders. Unfortunately, there are just too many youth leaders who should be role models but are actually out there causing harm to children. In Minnesota, a man recently pleaded guilty to producing a mobile phone video that showed a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Michael Angelo Borromeo is a former Girl Scout Volunteer for the Girls Scouts of Minnesota and the Wisconsin River Valley. Mr. Borromeo was charged with several crimes including criminal sexual conduct (felony), child solicitation, and creating child pornography.
It is unfortunate that some volunteers and others who work with children will commit acts that are harmful to children. You can read more about this story at Former Scout Volunteer Pleads Guilty to Producing Child Pornography.
