Fredericks said that Pegg, a “respected law enforcement officer,” threatened to kill him if he “told anyone about our secret.”
Newton, NJ — A Newton courtroom erupted in “thunderous applause” Wednesday after Clark Fredericks pleaded guilty to stabbing a retired cop who molested him as a young boy.
Fredericks pleaded guilty to passion provocation manslaughter in the brutal slaying of retired correction officer Dennis Pegg three years ago.
“From the time I was 8 years old until I was 12 years old, I was sexually assaulted and raped by Dennis Pegg,” Fredericks told the court in his heartfelt testimony, CBS in New York reported.
“It started with him wanting to touch my scar that I had through open-heart surgery at the age of 6,” Fredericks continued. “It progressed to wrestling matches and eventually led to him raping me.”
Fredericks said that Pegg, a “respected law enforcement officer,” threatened to kill him if he “told anyone about our secret,” CBS reported.
Fredericks claims were backed up after child pornography was found on Pegg’s computer, NJ.com reported.
“My reaction to seeing Sandusky get out of that car with his lawyer is that Dennis Pegg would never be held accountable,” Fredericks said, according to CBS. “The next day — June 12, 2012 — my shell cracked. My mind flooded with images, memories, anger and mostly shame,” he said.
“At the end, I slit his throat,” Fredericks said.
According to authorities, Fredericks stabbed Pegg more than 20 times in the neck, chest, and stomach.
Sexual abuse among law enforcement is the number 2 most popular complaint, second only to brutality. Many of these sex-offender cops get off with little to no punishment for their sadistic and sickening behavior. This lack of accountability was apparently evident in the case of Fredericks.
