How Far Would You Go to Protect Your Child?
Since Ellie says Willy was abused worse than the other boys, his testimony would have come last at the trial. But, Ellie says Willy was so nervous, he didn't want to take the stand. "I said, 'Willy, you have to do it,'" Ellie says. "And he said, 'Mom, I can't.'"
Willy says he didn't want to face Daniel and relive the horrible memories. "I thought he was going to hurt me again when I went in [to the courtroom]," Willy says. "It brought back so many memories looking at him like that, and it just scared me."
