Raniere defense? Man accused of molesting preteen girls told police he is a boy trapped in a man’s body

Joseph Roman was charged with sexual molestation charges after three girls between the ages of six and eight came forward alleging they were assaulted during a three-year period.

During a January 24 hearing, Roman admitted to some of the charges and told the court he felt he was “a nine-year-old trapped in an adult’s body,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

Joseph Roman says he is a boy trapped in a man’s body to explain his sexual abuse of three girls. He was charged with numerous felonies.
Keith Raniere says he is a Vanguard who mentors females through sexual contact to explain his sexual abuse of scores of women and girls. He has never been charged with any crimes.

  • To compare Keith with this pervert and mentally sick man is perverse in itself. Keith only rapes adult girls who he starves to look like 9 year old boys. This perv in your story thought he was a 9 year old boy. And when Keith rapes underage girls he waits until they are at least 12 which is the age of consent in Mexico. No the comparison between the two pervs is not apt at all. Besides the perv in the story may be lying about being trapped in a 9 year olds body. With Keith there is no “ may be “ about it. He is lying. He lies about everything. Of his lips are moving he is lying. Count on it.
