Stephen Field Mormon Sex Crime Case Summary

03/18/88 California

LDS Stephen D. Field was placed on the BSA confidential file on June 18, 1971 but even
though “the LDS Bishop at Valencia told the Brother-in-Law (who was a Scoutmaster in the
LDS Church) not to associate with Stephen Field anymore” Field “continued to work with
the Valencia troop after he moved to Newhall. ” Field was sentenced (in 1988) to state
prison.. for molesting two 13 year-old boys…. It appears that this conduct has been going on
for an extremely long period of time. Field was asked to leave a Santa Monica Boy Scout
troop in 1971 after complaints from boys in the troop.” And “The Boy Scouts of America
have a file on Mr. Field, dating back to 1 971 , containing some complaints that were made
about Mr. Field.”
