Stabbed: A plea deal may soon be reached in the case of New Jersey man Clark Fredericks (right) charged with fatally stabbing a Boy Scout leader, Dennis Pegg, 68 (left) he says molested him when he was a teen
NBC 4 reports that Fredericks, 49, told the courtroom on Wednesday; 'From the time I was eight-years-old until I was 12, I was sexually assaulted and raped by Dennis Pegg.'
This is what a truthful statement sounds like.
He then claimed that his best friend Jeff, who took his own life in 1983, was also a victim of Pegg's sexual assaults as a child.
Fredericks said that after seeing the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse trial his 'shell cracked,' and that the next day, after getting drunk and snorting cocaine, he traveled with a friend to Pegg's home.
Sandusky was an assistant coach at Penn State University who was arrested and charged with 52 counts of sexual abuse that occurred over the course of 15 years.
'I started stabbing Dennis,' said Fredericks.
What one starts should be brought to completion. We also note he uses the first name only, while "stabbing."
Fredericks (above as a child) claims the abuse began when he was just eight-years-old
'I said, "How does it feel raping little kids now. It's not so fun raping little kids now, is it?"'
He then told the judge; 'At the end I slit his throat.'
Here it is to completion.
Note "I slit his throat" is consistent with something within the abuse.
This admission caused those in attendance, most of whom were supporters of Fredericks, to break down in tears.
Fredericks also claimed that it was not just sexual assault he suffered at the hands of Pegg, but also emotional abuse and threats of murder.
'Dennis Pegg controlled me by torturing and killing animals in front of me, saying he would do the same to me if I told anyone about our secret,' he said.
Here he uses the full name while the victim is "alive."
Note the connection of silence with the slitting of the victim's throat.
CBS 2 reports that Fredericks’ guilty plea on charges of passion provocation manslaughter means he will be sentenced to five to 10 years in prison when arraigned in August.
Prosecutor Francis Koch told the judge that Fredericks' defense could not be 'disapproved beyond a reasonable doubt.'
After Fredericks finished describing his alleged abuse, the courtroom applauded him.
'If someone was to hurt my child, I'll be honest with you, there would be no judge, no jury,' said Rose Funari, who claims her brother was also sexually assaulted by Pegg.
"Child" is the word associated with child abuse.
Bob Reynolds, the friend who drove Fredericks to Pegg's home and has been charged as an accomplice in the murder, is due in court on Tuesday.
