Sexual abuse has many negative aftereffects other than the obvious pain and suffering incurred at the time of the sex abuse act. Sometimes, the memory is repressed by the victim for years, only to unearth itself painfully sometimes decades later. So what is to be done? Is the victim to suffer with no vindication? Is the abuser to walk away free to commit hideous sex abuses and sex crimes time and time again? Take the case of Robert Goodman, now living in Arizona as an adult, who alleges that he was a victim of clergy abuse as a youth in the ’70’s while attending St. Joseph’s Catholic Church grade school, in York Nebraska. He recently remembered the child sex abuse and sought justice, filing a claim against the school and his abusers. He’s getting his day in court.
