|Joseph Michael Henry|
Pinkosh was raped when he was 8 or 9 years old by Father Henry who was the priest at St. Anthony Church in Kailua. He was told to keep it to himself and initially didn't tell his family but did go to others in the church. He told another priest and two nuns. Nothing happened.
At age 20, Pinkosh told his family, friends and co-workers. But couldn't prosecute his rapist because too much time had passed.
"Like me you can come home. You folks can come home. You can feel safe again and you can finally have some justice for what happened to you," said Pinkosh. "I think it's very important for there to be a face and a name associated with what's going on so other people will come forward. I'm doing this for other people out there right now."
