I hope this is news that gives you all hope and at the very least some satisfaction.

It was 17th Oct 2004 that I made my statement of complaint to the Police against the person that abused me way back in 1969.

It's been a long wait, but I was in Crown Court today ready to give evidence. The case was estimated to last 4 days.

The day started off very slowly and I had a real mix of emotions & mood swings.

The police were nearly 2 hours later than scheduled for the statement review. This was because the defence wanted to split the 2 cases apart.

I thought I was about to be called to give evidence, when the case was deferred again. The 3rd person to make a statement was present in court & the judge was being petitioned to allow his evidence to be heard.

There was further deferral & we began to wonder what was happening.

It seems that the defence barrister had realised that the case was a looser from the start!

The police had already stated that the evidence was so strong that they were expecting a positive result!

Around 14:30 this afternoon, I was informed that it was all over. The perv had admitted all 5 charges laid against him (4 for myself & 1 for the second person that complained).

He has finally admitted guilt and will be sentenced week commencing 13th of Feb (strange 13 was always my lucky number). I don't know what the sentence will be, but I am going to attend court to see the final day of justice.

I realise that he has only admittted guilt now in the hope of a reduced sentence - do I care - HE IS GOING TO JAIL.

All of the heartache that I have endured over the years, has finally been handed right back to where it belongs!

I thank every single one of you here for the support I have received over the last 2 years. This is not just a personal victory, I claim it for all of us! I also claim it for the lost boys that didn't make it through!

I had my photograph with the names of 189 direct supporters surrounding it, my Dad's ID tag from the Second World War, my Mother's eternity ring, my dog's name tag, my carved silver half dollar, my hotwheels car and a plastic scorpion with me ready to go into court - they must have brought me some luck!

I also gave each of my 3 friends that gave supportive statements, a hot wheels car each - they were also going to take them in to court when it was their turn. *3 friends were the first people that I ever told & they wrote statements stating how my character had changed since disclosing.

A special thanks also goes to those of you who have given me additional support over the last few days - I really needed it! You know who you are!!

My head is mush now, I just can't take it in - a result!!!

Survivors 1 : Pervs 0

Best wishes and a further thanks to you all...Rik

Rik, lucky 13 is one of my lucky numbers.

Maybe because of all my prior bad luck.
I am glad it did not go to jury, as it would have been immensely challenging emotionally, especially if it had went for him, not you.

Grrrrrrrrr8 News.

It further hurts all the perps who havent been collared yet,

I bet his surname started with the letter,

A,D,F,H,P or R

Am I right?

If you add up todays date;

23+
01+
26=
---
50
---

2+3+1+2+6=14

add one to the four, and you get 5

1=a
2=b
3=c
4=d
5=E

E is for EVIL

Funnily enough

13+
02+
26=
---
41
---

4+1=5=E

Yeah, I crunch numbers in my head, but 0=0 in the alphabet so discount it in dates,

Rik,

I wept when I read your post. Thank-you for your courage and strength. This means so much to so many.

Wow!

Lots of love,

John

Well this is nothing short of a miracle.
Sheer Grace!

One more thing, now that your abuser is going to spend the rest of his life in a prison cell, may Lord grant him, His grace so that he sees the light that resides in him, and may his soul find redemption thru your forgiveness and grace.
