Tonight's special guest is Richard Windmann from Fort Worth, Texas, who was sexually abused in Boy Scouts by four leaders who passed him around, by a sex crimes detective who worked on his case who was later jailed himself, and later by the janitor and a priest at a Jesuit high school. Richard's childhood was filled with sexual abuse. "I was a typical mid-city kid." Unbeknownst to his mother the boy scout troop he joined was started by pedophiles and all four of his Boy Scout leaders raped him. Men would fly in from out of town to have sex with me. It was two years before detectives would find this pedophile ring. Then he contacted two police officers and one told him not to call back. "As a kid I did not know to call the District Attorney," he explains. "Then the sex crimes detective also raped me and scarred me by showing me a picture of a dead teen. I was then called in to a court case against this sex crimes detective. The court found that my testimony was believed over the detective's testimony." Richard stays busy helping others. "I find my healing through helping others find their voice," he says. "I am the president of a group which helps adult survivors of child abuse try to get justice and tell their story. The name of the organization is 'Survivors of Childhood Sex Abuse'." SCSA is an advocacy and support group for victims and survivors of childhood sex abuse. They offer resources and support free of charge to victims and survivors. The mission of Survivors of Childhood Sex Abuse is to empower victims to become survivors and thrive. "Through understanding, empathy, education and advocacy, we support you and your loved ones in your healing journey," he says. "We will listen to you, believe you, and we support you."
