Child abuse (e.g., molestation)is known in the mental health field as "the gift that keeps on giving". If any of these young men were abused as minors, an egregious act or acts has occurred. Victims often attempt to self-medicate (i.e., use alcohol or other drugs)in an effort to deal with anxiety/depression. Thus, any perpetrator should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Yet, one should keep in mind that if variables such as money and power are introduced into the equation, there is an inexorable skewing of the situation in favor of the perpetrator. Sex offenders frequently "groom" their intended victims by offering/promising desirable things to their prey. Victims are not just randomly selected by a perpetrator. Perpetrators are most interested in targets that would be relatively easy to manipulate or coerce. It is certainly not without precedent that victims have eventually taken revenge upon their perpetrators.
