The names of close to 200 Boy Scout leaders in New York and New Jersey accused of sexually abusing kids will be released Tuesday.

The leaders worked in both states and were named in the Boy Scouts of America’s “perversion files,”according to a pair of law firms representing victims.

At afternoon press conferences in Midtown and Newark, lawyers from the firms of Greg Gianforcaro and Jeff Anderson & Associates plan to release “shocking testimony” and demand that the Boy Scouts of America release the identities, background information and files on all BSA perpetrators in New Jersey who have been accused of sexual misconduct with minors.

The law firms allege that there are more than 7,000 child sex abusers in the Boy Scouts.
