UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ))) ) Criminal No: 10-MJ-0215-01(DAR)
v. )
SCOTT BLOCH ))
DEFENDANT

Scott Bloch's Sentencing Hearing is scheduled for January 25, 2011 at 10:30 in Courtroom 4 of Federal District Court for the District of Columbia.  A number of people have filed victim impact statements and the Judge has entered them into the case record.   The plain meaning of the law requires Bloch's sentence include at least a month of incarceration, but Bloch (with support of Justice Department!) is arguing that the plain meaning of the law should not apply.  

Anyone can get a PACER account at http://www.pacer.gov  by which all the case  filings can be accessed.  If you log on there you can see all the other victim statements.


Scott Bloch is a US attorney, former deputy director and counsel to the Department of Justice's Task Force for Faith-based and Community Initiatives, and former Special Counsel at the United States Office of Special Counsel (OSC). The Special Counsel is the highest position in the OSC, which upholds anti-discrimination laws and whistleblower protections for federal employees.


The Teen Challenge programs were financed by money from the Office of the White House Faith-based and Community Initiative grants -  and Scott Bloch headed that agency grant program. Thus anyone who was harmed at Teen Challenge may potentially have a case against Scott Bloch for not protecting their human rights when he reviewed non governmental agency grant application and did not do due diligence to assure the safety and well being of minors and young teens who were held in those facilities funded by the Faith-based and Community grants.  Lack of adherence to regulatory standards and lack of inspections by regulatory agencies - ie: department of health. Scott Bloch preferentially gave grants to the Straight Inc. derivative type substance abuse treatment centers.

Scott Bloch also permitted the homosexual discrimination under his watch in OSC.   Bloch's first major actions as head of the office were to choose as deputy a lawyer who had publicly taken a position against the "homosexual agenda", and to hire young lawyers from Ave Maria School of Law. In February 2004, Bloch ordered all mention of sexual orientation workplace nondiscrimination be removed from OSC's website and printed materials. Bloch stated his office lacked the authority to ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

On October 20, 2008, Bloch announced his intention to resign from his position as Special Counsel at the OSC on January 5, 2009. But his employment ended abruptly on October 23, during a meeting with White House officials. He was subsequently barred from entry to his office by the United States Federal Protective Service, which handles security at federal facilities.

On April 27, 2010 Bloch pleaded guilty to criminal contempt of Congress for, according to the U.S. Attorney, "willfully and unlawfully withholding pertinent information from a House committee investigating his decision to have several government computers wiped ...."

Anyone can submit a victim impact statement,  You will want to state what dates you were in a Teen Challenge facility and the injuries/harm you suffered.  

The Four Injuries of  Victimization

There are various types of injuries that a victim may experience. They can be broken down into four main categories:

Physical injuries involve damage to the victimís body. Physical injuries may range from minor (bumps, scratches) to moderate (bruises, broken bones) to severe (stabbing, gunshot wounds). Some physical injuries will be visible and others will not. It may not be possible to see the physical injuries caused by a sexual assault or injuries that are covered by clothing or an injury that happens inside the brain. Do not assume that a person is not injured simply because the injury is not visible. As a result of the crime, some victims may experience health-related problems such as headaches, stomach aches, etc. A person who already has a disability may find that the disability becomes more severe after the crime. Even when the physical wounds caused by crime have healed, the victim may continue to experience pain or discomfort for a period of time.

Financial injuries may involve stealing of money or possessions, or damage to items that have to be repaired or replaced. There may also be expenses for medical care, counseling, transportation, child care, and time off from work to go to court. If the offender was a service provider (such as a babbysitter or Personal Care Attendant), the victim or the victimís family may need to pay for emergency care or transportation services until a new service provider can be hired. For many victims with limited resources, these financial injuries cause a great deal of hardship.

Emotional injuries are described in more detail in the section on "The Trauma of Victimization." For many victims, witnesses and their family members, the emotional injuries may be the most difficult and long-lasting effects of being the victim of a crime.

Social injuries are those caused by society. A social injury occurs when the victim is treated insensitively, does not think anyone cares or is not able to get the help she needs. Anyone can cause a social injury: a friend or family member, a law enforcement officer, a prosecutor, a member of the clergy, or a counselor or other service provider, who may not believe the victim who reports a crime, may not help the victim, or may not treat the victim with dignity, compassion and respect. Social injuries are discussed further in "The Trauma of Victimization" section on the NOVA website.
