SARASOTA, FL -  A 12th Circuit Court judge has ordered the Boy Scouts of America to release documents related to scout-on-scout sexual abuse that occurred over the past ten years.

The order follows the release of so-called 'Persion Files' last October, in which the Boy Scouts of America admitted documentation of abuse by adults on minors.

Now, some of the victims are speaking out. ABC 7 Reporter Trevor Shirley is covering the story and will have more tonight on ABC 7 News at 5.
