Blue Springs physician Joseph T. Mackey has been accused of using his position as a family doctor and local Boy Scout Troop Leader to molest at least three young boys.

Boy Scout Abuse

The Kansas City Star reports that the physician faces a hearing next month before the Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts to determine whether he abused his position as a family doctor to sexually molest the boys.

A ruling against the physician will likely lead to the revocation of his medical license. Dr. Mackey's license is currently suspended pending the board hearing.

The revocation of his medical license is the least of worries for this physician. Led by Ken McClain, a group of core litigators from the law firm of Humphrey, Farrington & McClain have dedicated a significant portion of their practice to fighting for children who have been victimized - physically, emotionally and sexually - by those in positions of power and influence.

It is extremely rare for a child predator to only sexually abuse one child. Legal proceedings against a child molester or an organization can encourage other victims to come forward and remedy the systemic failures which allowed the abuse to occur in the first place.

If you or a loved one has experienced sexual assault from someone who has abused a position of power, contact the attorneys at Humphrey, Farrington & McClain online or call 816-836-5050 for more information.

The Kansas City Star reports that Dr. Mackey resigned from Advanced Family Care a short time after an administrative judge granted an emergency suspension of his medical license.

Spokespeople for the Heart of America Council of the Boy Scouts have told reporters that the scouts no longer have ties to Dr. Mackey. The scouts allegedly severed ties with the doctor once they heard about the child molestation accusations. Scouting officials added that they turned information regarding the child sex abuse allegations over to authorities.
