Tonight's special guest is John Sweeney from New London, Connecticut, a child abuse survivor and victim of the Fessenden School. He's also the author of the book "In the Presence of the Devil." John writes, "My book is about a young boy from a good family who could be the 'poster child' for sex abuse." He goes on, "The shame, guilt, and psychological torture I was subjected to played a direct role in how I viewed and lived life, which for me had to be lived dangerously on the edge." Only now, some 44 years later, has John become able to talk about his compelling life's journey. "The rape and torture I was subjected to, played a direct role in how I viewed and lived life, which for me had to be lived dangerously on the edge," he writes. "All because at the age of eleven, I was drugged and rape while sleeping in my dorm room by Arthur Clarridge, my pedophile math teacher." He explains that 'Preston' tried to 'groom' him and many other young boys, while attending the Fessenden School, a prestigious New England boarding school. Things began to change for Sweeney in 2011, when he hired famous Child Sex Abuse Attorney Mitchell Garabedian. Sweeney fought back, and gathered information that he gave to the Boston Globe Spotlight Team, which his attorney Mitchell Garabedian says “blew the lid off the Fessenden School sex scandal case."
