Boy Scout abuser released from Idaho to Utah

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A former Boy Scout camp counseler who acknowledged abusing dozens of youngsters in the 1990s is out of prison and living in Utah. The Idaho Falls Post-Register reported Wednesday that Brad Stowell was released June 13. Department of Correction spokeswoman Teresa Jones says Stowell must abide by both states’ parole guidelines. Stowell has had a history of violating his parole. Following his 1997 arrest and guilty plea to molesting two boys, Stowell was imprisoned in 2005 for a violation. He was released in 2008, but was back behind bars five weeks later for violating parole. An officer found a laptop computer with Internet access in his Boise apartment. Stowell was a camp counselor at Camp Little Lemhi in eastern Idaho where he admitted to molesting as many as 24 boys.
