ATTLEBORO - The names of two local men are among almost 200 from Massachusetts and more than 1,200 across the nation named as sexual predators by the Boy Scouts of America in a mammoth load of documents dubbed "the perversion files" released Thursday.
An Oregon court ordered the release of the 14,500-page collection, which includes both substantiated and unsubstantiated allegations of sexual abuse of Scouts dating back almost to the founding of the organization in 1910.
