This is the harrowing story of how a prison guard repeatedly raped a young 10-year-old boy inside the jail.
When young ‘Butch’ was in Victoria’s primary school during the 1970s, one of his best friends was a convicted pedophile, and his playground used to be the prison.
The very cheerful blond’s father was a prison guard and the family lived right outside the HM Prison Beechworth during the mid 19th century. On most weekends as well as school holidays, young Butch would enter through the jail’s gate and meet his inmate friend named Bob Curtis.
At that time, his friend was in his twenties but had convictions relating to indecent sexual assault of kids as well as burglary and a few other offenses.
Despite knowing his background well, Butch’s father still let his son play with his friend carelessly.But little did he know, this would soon prove to be the biggest mistake of his life.
What Butch’s father didn’t know is how his son spent so much time with the jailed inmate alone. He had become his after-school companion in no time. Moreover, the pedophile used to rape the young blond boy orally, anally as well as engaging him in digital raping too.
Today, Butch is 58 years old and has his own teenage son. However, the past haunts him today as he suffered for decades in absolute silence. The impact that Curtis left on Butch was absolutely devastating and he claims that it ruined his life entirely.
But now, the family is finally speaking up and wants the world to hear.
Butch says he is more than ready to face the cameras, be photographed, and answer any questions about himself and his story. However, he does have one condition. He simply doesn’t wish to reveal his full name in any of this.
Today, Butch plans on taking the entire State of Victoria to court over his gruesome story, while seeking up to $4 million in damage as compensation for the trauma.
As it is, the entire story is very puzzling for so many people to comprehend. How could such a young boy be left alone inside a prison with a convicted pedophile that had so many charges and cases attached to his name. Also, how could no one in the higher authorities notice that something was going wrong?
There are plenty of questions yet to be answered and only time can tell whether or not Butch gets any luck over his demands.
