Lasting Affects of Child Molestation
Rebecca says she was nervous about visiting Willy because she hates having to say goodbye to her best friend. "Mom was my best friend for a long time," Rebecca says. "But Willy's definitely stepped up to that role. He's my confidant."
Dan and Rebecca met with Willy for two and a half hours, but cameras were not allowed inside the prison. Afterward, Dan says he was impressed by Willy's behavior. "Very often when I'll interview someone in prison, they'll either blame other people or they'll be angry or they'll talk about their innocence," Dan says. "Willy didn't do any of that. He was really introspective and thoughtful about his whole life and about the path that had led him there. That really struck me."
