We’ve seen it countless times over the years on Law & Order SVU, detectives and prosecutors trying to persuade the accusers of sexual abuse to take the stand, face the perpetrator and relive the horror of the sexual abuse they endured.
But this is not scripted episodic TV, this is real life with alleged real victims and an alleged pedophile with high standing in his community and career. These are not actors reading lines from writers, these are real men of various ages reliving and telling their recollection of abuse at the hands of someone they trusted and looked up to. 52 counts of sexual abuse from 10 accusers who now muster the courage to tell what they had dared not before.
