There were many victims and Peter shared that he was one of them via Twitter.

He stated that the police knew the other three boys he raped who didn’t want to get testified. 

He continued saying that sharing about this part of his life is totally distressing. 

Nevertheless, the professor was convicted of molestation of three children, and Peter was also included, and at that moment, he was just 13 years old
