They testified at a pretrial hearing in Superior Court in the case against Stephen Corcoran, 46, a Morris Plains resident and former leader of  Troop 173 in Parsippany.

One man testified that he was abused starting at age 10 1/2, the paper reported.

Another said he went on to have a relationship with the Scout leader after he turned 18, but joined a civil lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America and its local council because he felt the organization has not weeded out unfit supervisors, according to the article.

Corcoran was indicted in 2013 on several charges of aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault and child endangerment stemming from incidents where he allegedly showed pornography to youths.
