Former Boy Scout Volunteer Charged with Sex Abuse of Minors

Oct 19, 2017 - News by

Houston, TX – Ulf Gerrit Lueders, 41, is charged with continuous sex abuse of a child and online solicitation of a minor.

Leuders was involved in the Sam Houston Area Boy Scouts of America Troop 111, Ship 846 and Crew 762.  He is accused of sexually abusing one child in June 2010 and another in January 2014.  Both children were younger than 14, but Houston Police would not confirm if these children were involved with the Scouts. 

The police department has also accused Leuders of contacting someone he believed was 17 to solicit that minor for sex.

According to a statement released by The Boy Scouts of Ameria Sam Houston Area Council, they have, “comprehensive policies and procedures to serve as barriers to abuse.  These include a thorough screening process for adult leaders and staff criminal background checks, requiring two or more adult leaders be present with youth at all times during Scouting activities, adn the prompt reporting of any allegation or suspicion of abuse.”

Detectives are unsure if there are other victims, but have reached out to nearly 90 families whose children may have had interactions with Leuders.  The Houston Police Department is asking anyone whose children may have interacted with Leuders to speak to their children and contact them with any further information at 713-830-3254.
