Scout leader jailed for sex with boys

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

 A for­mer Scout leader has been jailed for 11 years af­ter a string of his­toric sex­ual of­fences against teenage boys.

Philip Levi, 73, pleaded guilty to charges re­lat­ing to the abuse of five vic­tims in his Har­row scout­ing group over a 13-year pe­riod in the Seven­ties and Eight­ies.

The youngest of his vic­tims was 13.

Har­row Crown Court heard yesterday that Levi, a re­tired char­tered ac­coun­tant, pinned one of his vic­tims down on a bed be­fore en­gag­ing in sex­ual ac­tiv­ity with him.

A state­ment from one of the vic­tims said: “I hope he rots in hell for what he did to me.”

Other vic­tims’ state­ments de­tailed mental tor­ment and feel­ings of guilt suf­fered as a re­sult of the abuse.
