Donald Stensland

Troop 863: Chicago, IL


Stensland, who was very connected in the Chicago community, resigned in 1990 “due to health reasons.” In 1991, a father’s letter revealed the true reasons behind Stensland’s resignation: a history of Troop 863 leaders, including Stensland, sleeping in the same bed as scouts; multiple reports of Stensland grooming young boys for abuse; and an accusation of sexual molesting a teenage scout 14 years prior to his resignation.
