NYC doc took pics of sex abuse; patients seek their whereabouts
Peter Katsikis had only one appointment with Archibald, in 1969. He said Archibald directed him to remove his clothes; he touched him sexually and then took several photos of him in the nude. Katsikis was 12 and said it was his first sexual experience. He wouldn’t tell anyone until he told his wife 26 years later.
The trauma changed him, he said, making him cynical and sometimes short-tempered as an adult. The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are sexual assault victims unless they grant permission.
“I’ve replayed the episode a couple thousand times,” said Katsikis, now 61, who lives in North Carolina. “It took me a couple years to sort things out as to what truly happened. I didn’t know anything about sex at 12 years old. When I got older I started to get angry, because I realized he took away my innocence.”
Here is a short clip of the coverage.
