it is said that on average an abuser will abuse eight people before being caught. I hope that takes into consideration my original abusers stats. Im no good at maths but here is a rough breakdown.

When I knew Chris Denning in 1970 he was entertaining three boys a day.

So that 3 x 365 = 1095 offences

1970 to 2006 = 36

36 x 1095 = 39420

Ok lets round that up to 40,000

If allowing for a 50% error that leaves 20,000 and even if he did not abuse 20,000 that still leaves one hell of a lot of damaged individuals.

That is one frightening stat.

Just another update - on Monday after attending court, I e-mailed the Policeman that I first spoke to! The Person that took my statement and immediately got the whole thing rolling. I thanked him for believing me.

He's obviously been off work until last night & I've now had a really positive response from him. He, along with the rest of the local police, is very pleased that we got a result. They are pleased that a pervert that was previously unknown to them has been stopped in his tracks.

He thinks that others may now come forward and also expects that others who remain silent will achieve some closure.

His feedback also supports a resounding theme among the responses that I have received - that I am a very strong person. Maybe I am, but there have been times over recent years that I have felt like the weakest of the weak! I certainly didn't feel too strong on Monday, as I waited to give evidence - although I knew I was ready.

It still hasn't really sunk in - maybe I need to see the sentencing carried out & maybe then I will really believe that all of this has happened. I've just been in chill out mode since Monday.

Thnaks again for your support...best wishes ...Rik

Rik,

You must have been strung out like a piano wire on Monday! So it doesn't surprise me that you are still taking things on board right now.

Yes, you ARE a strong person. What we feel about ourselves and who we really are can be so different! All we have to do is trust ourselves and take those forward steps.

And look at the results. Your courage has stopped someone who may have been abusing lots of boys, and it is setting an example to others. They will see that they are not condemned to silence and that they too can seek justice.

As you take all this on board I think you are in for a VERY fulfilling week or so - and you deserve every moment of it!

Much love,
Larry

Later today, it will be a week since the perv pleaded guilty. I am still having difficulty letting this result sink in. The only way that I can describe it, is: It's like being told you have some terrible disease that you will always have to live with, then going back to the doctor after a long, long time, worrying about the long-term implications to find out that you are actually OK after all and there is no problem.

Maybe when the sentencing is complete on 17th Feb, it will become more real!

Best wishes ...Rik

You may not see how I view events this way, but is sucks to have to go through that on my birthday, honestly, so hope it is delayed.,
