Wonderful information!! I work in the field of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault and everything you mentioned is spot-on. I am glad that this young man has been so well supported and well advised. The only thing I would add is pedophiles are masters at their craft. They groom adults as well as children/teens so that they can get away with their crime. This man that raped him TARGETED this mother because she had a child that would be made vulnerable at some point in the relationship. Pedophilia can not be cured , the experts are looking at teaching them to manage their urges. They are serial offenders and look for someone who is vulnerable, accessible and easily discredited. According to experts, the only time that pedophiles stop is when they are imprisoned. This young man is made of tough stuff. PLEASE seek counseling. Working through the trauma is the best revenge!!!
