Null data member crashing TagUtils

I have a number of classes as follows:

Report
IOS
Scientist

Report has ----> private Vector<IOS> principals = new Vector<IOS>(); as a member variable
IOS has -------> private Scientist scientist; as a member variable
Scientist ------> private ActionErrors warningMessages = new ActionErrors();

My app is reading in some data from a file and loading it into a database. I am using Struts. The scientist datamember is NULL. When my object passes through TagUtils, I am getting the following error when principals[0].scientist.warningMessages runs through TagUtils:

SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception
javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Invalid argument looking up property principals[0].scientist.warningMessages of bean report
at org.apache.struts.taglib.TagUtils.lookup(TagUtils.java:959)
at org.apache.struts.taglib.bean.DefineTag.doEndTag(DefineTag.java:230)

Is there any way to define scientist or instantiate so that the error does not occur? I don't want to modify the Struts code one bit.
