Ellen, Karen and Celesta

2 of 10
With their mother, Ellen, Celesta and Karen demanded that their molester tell all the details of his sexual abuse.

"I feel like you betrayed me, you betrayed my family, you betrayed my father. I felt betrayed by my father," Celesta tells him. "And every time I see you, I feel like you don't care. You don't even remember. You don't know. You've never come to me and said you're sorry. And you know what? It's not okay. And I struggle with relationships and I fight to trust anyone. And I just feel like I need to give that back to you because I'm sick of being scared."

"What do you want me to do? I'll do anything," the molester responds. "I'll do anything you want me to do."

"I can remember like it was yesterday," he says. "It was like something that had happened to somebody else. Or somebody else was doing it. I don't…I don't know how to…I don't identify with that individual."
