BETWEEN THE LINES

WATCH: Abused As Boy Scout, Renowned Doctor Brings His Molester To Justice

Bullied at school in the 1970s for being “different” Frank Spinelli was signed up for the Boy scouts by his concerned parents. It must have seemed a godsend when kindly Scoutmaster Bill Fox, a cop, took an interest in the boy. Yet this friendship soon became a nightmare for the boy who was mentally and sexually abused by his mentor for two years.

With his gripping and heartrending new memoir, Pee-Shy, Spinelli releases three decades of confusion and self-blame —for himself, and for other boys like him.
