Former Adams Boy Scout leader is accused in court of reckless child endangerment

ADAMS — A former assistant leader of an Adams Boy Scout troop has had three criminal charges dismissed and was sentenced to probation for an incident involving the treatment of scouts under his supervision.

In December 2021, Massachusetts State Police received a report from a teenager that a then-assistant-leader of the troop, Joshua Shoestock, now 21, of Adams, in October of that year threw a stun grenade at two scouts when the troop was participating in an outing at a camp in Goshen.
