Tony is a father of two, a devoted husband, and a man with a childhood secret that was tearing him up inside. Born in Toledo, Ohio, Tony and his seven siblings were raised Catholic. At just 14, Tony's faith was shaken to the core. The man Tony says was sexually molesting him was someone he trusted more than anyone else: his high school priest.

"I was asleep and then as I came to, [I] realized what was happening and just kept my eyes closed and waited for it to be done," Tony says. "By done, I mean done."

Despite those haunting memories Tony moved on with his life, became a firefighter and married the love of his life, Wendy. The couple have two children.

The former priest who Tony accuses of molesting him denies all allegations, and Tony settled out of court with the Archdiocese of Toledo, Ohio.
