More Sexual Abuse Charges Against Former Boy Scout Volunteer

COLLINSVILLE, IL (KMOX) – A Metro East Boy Scout leader charged with sexual abuse has more victims than originally thought.  Police said today that three alleged victims are now tied to 53 year old Jon Demers of Collinsville.

Investigators say the first alleged victim endured six years of sexual abuse before telling his parents who then called police.

 Demers was arrested Tuesday and charged with twelve counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse.

He’s jailed on a half million dollars bond.

Police in Collinsville say Demers admitted that he had more victims.  Foster children who lived with Demers and his wife have been moved.

Demers was a committee member with Boy Scout Troop 520 in Belleville.

Police say Demers is retired from Scott Air Force Base.
