According to McLean County Circuit Court records, the man accused of raping a child from the Boys and Girls Club in Bloomington/Normal has several charges of domestic violence along with drug charges as recently as May of  2017.  

The Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington/Normal knew of Scott's criminal record and that his volunteer work was a result of court appointed community service.  According to the Boys and Girls Club CEO, Tony Morstatter, Scott passed a background check allowing him to work for the organization.  However, according to McLean County Circuit Court records, Scott has seen more than one indiscretion involving domestic battery.

The conviction record of Julius Scott is fairly extensive, including seven separate traffic violations in addition to charges of domestic battery violation of bail and possession of cannabis. On three separate occasions Scott was charged with domestic battery, with one resulting in a emergency order of protection. 

Scott has been implicated in domestic battery as far back as October 2016, being charged with a class 'A' criminal misdemeanor that was vacated after a bench trial. 

He proceeded with a case filed March 15, 2017 where Scott was sentenced to 24 months, amended to four days, and 100 hours of public service for domestic battery with physical contact and violation of bail.  

In another case filed on July 26, 2017 Scott faced two counts of domestic battery, resulting in a sentence of credit of time served, seven days, probation of 30 months, and public service which was amended to 50 hours. 

On another occasion Scott was charged with possession of cannabis less than ten grams only having to pay fines and penalties. 

Scott is currently in custody and bail is set at $500,000 and his arraignment is scheduled for July 20, 2018.
