Scout leader jailed for boy abuse

`A scout leader who set up a fake camp to lure boys to his home and abuse them has been jailed for nine months.

Alan Grant, 42, a former assistant commissioner, made parental consent forms for the bogus event. [..]

The court heard how Grant, who was area assistant commissioner for scouting in Perth and Kinross, lied to parents about a forthcoming scout camp he wanted their sons to attend.

Grant, who had more than 20 years’ involvement with the scouting movement as a volunteer, took two boys to his home, in St Madoes, and gave them alcohol before he abused them.’
