          “He said that he was sexually attracted to little girls, but that he was not acting on it,” Tabitha recalls. “I put two and two together and made four and said, well, someone who is sexually attracted to children, whether it’s boys or girls or whatever, is a pedophile.”

          Tabitha says that she chose to stay married to Gary after he assured her that he was not acting on his urges. “I believed it and I still do,” she says of her husband’s commitment to refrain from committing child molestation. She also believes her husband of 11 years is safe to be around children, including their grandchildren.
