On house arrest right now.
Accused of sexually molesting up to ten boys over a period.
Of twelve years.
He was expected to.
Faces accusers in -- court however he waved.
The the necessity.
Of the accuser is having to do that.
Which just some of them were apparently relieved about not having to repeat.
There -- accusations of all what they say happened to them years ago.

Is that doctor -- tableau of our own Fox News medical eighteen thank you as always for joining us -- -- -- -- so.
Us some of these guys as I just said were relieved they already had to testify before a grand jury and we live what they say they went thorough.
But others said you know what I was prepared I really want to do it I wanted to go out there and make it clear that -- -- victim.
Well and I think.
That for those.
Purported victims who claimed that they wanted to come forward and actually challenge this man.
Of course there's -- healing aspect to this if it actually occurred as they say it did for them to finally stand up and say this is what happened.

To then say.
No I have to admitted that person.
Was the aggressor and is a predator and I really was the one victimized and now who has survived trauma.

To -- you to entice you into thinking.
