Former Boy Scout leader indicted for sexual misconduct with 2 children

A former Boy Scout leader from Hamburg has been indicted on one felony and five misdemeanor counts in connection with allegations of sexual conduct with two juveniles.

Michael Meyers, 58, is alleged to have engaged in sexual conduct with an 11-year-old in December 2015 through August 2019 at locations in the towns of Boston and Hamburg. He is also accused of sexual conduct with a 13-year-old in May 2016 through September of last year, also at Boston and Hamburg locations.

Meyers had been serving on the executive board for the Greater Niagara Frontier Council of the Boy Scouts of America when this investigation began, and he is a previous Council president.

Meyers has a pre-trial conference scheduled in State Supreme Court on Nov. 5 and could face a maximum of seven years in prison if convicted on all charges.

Mark Wozniak, WBFO's local All Things Considered host, has been at WBFO since mid-1978.
