One Marine’s Toughest Battle

April 9, 2007


Kris Roberts of Keene is a state representative, a retired Marine lieutenant colonel, and a survivor of childhood sex abuse. Today he joins Gov. Lynch and Attorney General Kelly Ayotte to raise awareness of the crime committed against him when he was a child, and other sexual violence and abuse. Roberts says his mission is deploying information in the battle against the crime…

"Inform, prevent, and correct. If I inform them about it, it gives them the opportunity to prevent it from happening, and then it gives them then the opportunity to correct the cause."

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month in New Hampshire. In the two years since Gov. Lynch first spotlighted the need for men to come forward for treatment, the number of men seeking help has more than doubled. The New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence says one in three women, and one in ten men is a survivor of sexual violence.

Roberts believes scars of his abuse have lingered longer than any injuries he suffered in the military…

"When the stuff is happening, you’re out of the moment. But it does such a tremendous wear and tear on your immune system, your nervous system, the whole works."
