was an LDS church member and Boy Scout leader in Idaho Falls, Idaho; accused of grooming and/or sexual abuse by multiple boys in his scout troop; in 1988, his BSA registration was suspended

Case Summary

Keven B. Nelson was a Mormon church member and boy scout leader in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

In 1988, Nelson’s Boy Scouts of America (BSA) registration was suspended after the BSA found out about accusations that Nelson had sexually abused multiple boys in his scout troop.

Scout executive Harold G. Hillam, who later served in the LDS church’s upper ranks of leadership, sent Nelson a letter telling him that his BSA scout membership was suspended.

FLOODLIT.org has not been able to find any evidence to suggest that Nelson was ever criminally charged, arrested or sued civilly in regard to the allegations.
