Willy says he doesn't regret telling his mother about the molestation, but it's bittersweet. "In a way, I'm glad I did because now he can't hurt any more kids, and I don't have to worry about him hurting me," Willy says. "On the other hand, I lost my mom."

It has been difficult for Ellie's daughter, Rebecca, to see her big brother in so much pain. "A long time ago, my mom told me that my brother was in so much pain that he was going to kill himself, and that hurt me a lot," Rebecca says. "Everybody else loves me, but my mom and my brother love me most."

Though Ellie was sentenced to 10 years in prison, Willy believes his mother shouldn't be punished. "Because I think he deserved it, I mean, going out and hurting kids like that," Willy says. "I wasn't the only one."
