For Thomas Roberts, the abuse remained in the shadows. As a successful CNN news anchor, Roberts had buried the hurt, anger, and shame of the abuse-even from himself. Finally, after suffering in silence and fear for 20 years, Roberts came forth and told his tale of horror. Many sexual abuse survivors tell similar tales. They are fearful of recrimination, rejection, and most of all, once again confronting the horror they experienced as a child. As a trial lawyer who has represented these courageous people, I’m proud of Roberts for coming forward and sharing his painful story. Hopefully, others will draw comfort and strength from his courage.
