While the courts may not have delivered the justice he deserved, a Nevada victim of a now 80-year-old pedophile got some satisfaction when he succeeded in knocking out the pervert after he was handed a suspended sentence.
Tylor Fu, 29, was sexually abused for years as a child by Richard Gross, a family friend who helped out as his babysitter, and his testimony against Gross helped secure a conviction on 26 felony counts of sexual abuse of a child. Remarkably, as part of a plea deal, Gross was given a suspended sentence of 60-180 months by Clark County District Judge Tierra Jones and will spend no time behind bars.
Fu said that he was furious at the arrangement, and lashed out at Gross during the October 2 sentencing, sending him to the hospital.
“I was extremely angry,” Fu told 8 News Now, of the sentence.
Gross said he briefly lost consciousness and was taken to a local hospital, 8 News Now reported. His glasses were also broken, according to his wife. Fu was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery — it’s hard-pressed to think any prosecutor would pursue the charge.
“I know he’s old, but that doesn’t change anything like that, doesn’t change the damage that he caused, the horrific effects that I had to live through for decades, and it was not justice at all,” he insisted.
Fu said Gross abused him from the age of eight to 15.
“It just doesn’t make sense how someone can abuse a child multiple times and just walk away without any prison time,” he told the affiliate.
Now married — Fu is the father of two children — he said his wife showed him a 2019 news article about sexual abuse, which led to him reporting Gross to the police.
In 2021, Fu filed a lawsuit against Gross and his wife for assault and battery, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligence and negligent supervision.
“I really tried to put it away and move on and be strong, but as you get older, you start to realize what went wrong more, and I saw exactly where my problems were coming from,” he explained.
“It just feels like the right thing to do and I really want all the kids out there to know if you’ve been, you know, sexually abused, it’s not right and you need to report it,” Fu said of the legal action. “We cannot tolerate sexual abuse of children, and it is absolutely one of the worst crimes any human can commit and needs to be stopped.”
