Robert Buswell

Robert Buswell was a victim of child abuse by a coach in the 1970s. Due to the abuse that occurred, Rob was mislabeled which changed his trajectory and set the stage for his life from 1978-1994. Barriers, obstacles and a manila folder full of lowered expectations sealed his public-school education fate. Three years after graduating high school, Rob applied to a small college that took a chance on him and he graduated in a total of three years with two diplomas. He was no longer saddled with the baggage of that manila folder full of rubber stamps that told him what he couldn’t do. He had faced and defeated all the obstacles in his life but one, the abuse that was the root cause of his pain. In 2007, Rob had a paradigm shift in his life that allowed him to finally come forward in an effort to protect other children from his abuser. During the case against his abuser, a gap in the sex offender registry was discovered. After his predator was convicted, Rob fought for several years and was instrumental in getting two laws passed. One exposed 5,604 child predators who had skirted the registry, just as his abuser had, due to a gap in the law after their crimes were adjudicated. Rob lives in Virginia with his family and three dogs and continues to fight for child advocacy rights.
