Meet Rich Fogarty, child sexual abuse survivor and FACAA rep. In 2019 he is helping FACAA take the fight to end child abuse to a whole new level !
“I was built out of my childhood. While much of my personality was forged from a need to be noticed and loved in a crowd of kids, it has made me strive for success in everything I do, and cherish the ones I love. All of us take something from our upbringing, whether it is good or bad. I wouldn’t change the way I was raised, despite the darkness that sometimes crept into my childhood, because I am proud of whom I have become”. – Rich Fogarty, spoken like a true survivor !
Rich was raised in various hotels across New South Wales, Richard and his brother, Rob, spent their afternoons avoiding a rabble of bikies, prostitutes, drunks and drug addicts who frequented the cheap establishments. While their parents worked day and night running hotel restaurants and bars, Richard and Rob ran across hotel roofs, hurled rocks at cars and antagonised hotel guests for their own entertainment.
When a family friend was commissioned to take care of the boys while Richard’s parents were working, Richard made sure he took care of Rob in more critical ways. Richard he was four or five years old when this family friend began sexually abusing him. “I took it upon myself to protect Rob from that sort of danger,” he says. “I would deliberately fight with him to get him to take off. It was my secret, my pain, and not something I could share with anyone else. It was 30 years until I could even speak openly about what happened.”
Much of Richard’s childhood is a blur. The abuse caused him to shut out what happened in those dark years. “The good stuff I remember,” he says. “Our mum filled our lives with love, loyalty and even animals to try and make life as normal as possible. We had a farm out the back of our hotel that we invited all the local kids to. The bad stuff about my childhood I try to forget. I had a rough time in school while this was going on, because I couldn’t trust anyone. It takes that from you, the abuse. You lose the capacity to interact normally with others.”
Normality returned to Richard’s life when the family moved from the hotel where they were staying into another in Mathoura. When the family friend followed the family to that hotel Richard was about six, he was able to escape the abuse a second time when his mother and father sent him and Rob away to stay with his grandparents in Tamworth. The demons that haunted Richard still pursued him.
In about 1990 Rich was being bullied by kids at his school and like a lot of bullying victims he felt powerless to stop their bashings and harassment and so he was forced to run away. This left him feeling powerless and wanting a way to fight back, wanting to stand up for himself he went down to a local fight night.
The night just happened to be headlined by an old friend he hadn’t seen in years, seeing his friend in the main event inspired him and changed the direction of his life forever. He started up martial arts, in particular Mas Oyama’s Kyokoshin Karate which is in some circles called “The hardest Karate”. The thing was he was good, very good and went on to win several knockdown and points sparring titles.
He would then go on and learn all different styles of martial arts including Kickboxing, Thai Boxing, Boxing and Ring Karate. Over a 14 year fight career Richard represented and won state, national titles.
Richard to this day is involved in the martial arts industry as a specialty striking coach whom has worked with some of the worlds best combat sport athletes and coaches in MMA, Muay Thai and Boxing. You can see in the poster he holds pads for UFC and FACAA rep Jake “The Celtic kid” Matthews, UFC heavyweight sensation and friend of FACAA Mark “The SuperSamoan” Hunt, UFC’s Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson, UFC Lightweight legend Donald “Cowboy” Cerone and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, in getting ready for this article Rich sent us photos of himself training Diego “The Dream” Sanchez, Alistair Overeem, the list goes on and on and on. He has held pads for and coaches the whos who of UFC superstars. To say that he is at the top of his profession is an understatement, there are very few out there who can boast such a client list like Rich can.
He now teaches out of Steel City Boxing a martial arts gym in Newcastle, he is an approved FACAA coach and next year will be helping us raise much needed funds to help end child abuse once and for all. I can’t say too much but all I will say is 2019 is ours and we are willing to fight for it !
To say Rich has overcome his childhood is an understatement, like a true survivor he took what would have crushed most people and turned them to addictions and other forms of self medication and used the pain and used the demons that haunted him to help him become a man of strength and unstoppable tenacity ! If he wants it he works his tail to the bone until he gets it and nothing will stand in his way and that is the exact never say die attitude and resilience we want to instil in the FACAA kids that come to us to overcome their ordeals.
Thank you for coming on board with FACAA Rich, we know that with your help we will do great things and take this fight to previously unseen levels !
We are going to end child abuse once and for all, with Rich’s help and the help of all the FACAA reps (who every Saturday night you will meet a new one of and hear their truly inspirational stories), who we like to call the FACAA Army we will take this fight to end child abuse, once and for all, straight to the front lines and we will force them back !
If you don’t believe us, or don’t want to help…that’s cool….. just don’t get in our way !

Swim teacher Anthony Dvorak will serve just one year behind bars for sexually abusing one of his teen students.
He told her “If you’d kept your mouth shut none of this would have happened” and yet his lawyer had the arrogance to suggest he was “ remorseful” for his crimes.
A Perth swimming teacher Anthony Dvorak has been sentenced to two years in prison for sexually abusing a teenage girl. He will serve just one of those before he is eligible for parole, for some reason our source on this post which was ABC.net.au was almost sympathetic of Mr Dvorak talking about how much this case had impacted upon his life.
Anthony Craig Dvorak kissed and inappropriately touched the girl, who was aged 14 when the offending began. He also sent her a series of explicit text messages over a period of more than a year, and requested she send him photographs of herself. Dvorak winced and visibly shook during a sentencing hearing in the District Court in Perth as some of those text messages were read aloud.
The court was told the teenage victim now suffered from anxiety and depression, an eating disorder and suicidal thoughts, and had become socially withdrawn. Judge Kate Glancy said the swimming teacher had abused the girl’s trust and his offending would continue to have a significant impact on her life.
Your conduct was corrupting, abhorrent, illegal and detrimental to her wellbeing,” she said.
“You were the teacher of children … you would have known about the vulnerability of children.
“None of your offending is the fault of a 14- or 15-year-old girl who was taken advantage of by a man three times her age.”
So Judge Glancy knew all of the facts about how horrendously Mr Dvorak acted and the impact he has had on his victim’s life yet she still gave him just one year behind bars before letting him have parole. Why ?
The court heard a police search of Dvorak’s Beeliar home had uncovered a series of handwritten notes about his relationship with the teenager, one of which read:
“I love you, I hate you, I can’t live without you … If you had kept your mouth shut none of this would have happened.”
Defence lawyer Ashley Wilson said his client’s offences had occurred during an acute phase of depression. But he said Dvorak knew what he had done was wrong and had shown remorse for his actions.
Please allow us at FACAA to give you a quick lesson in what remorse is and is not, it is feeling guilty for what he has done, it is feeling empathy for his victim none of which your client Mr Dvorak has shown. What he has shown is a willingness to blame his victim entirely for his pathetic cowardly actions. By writing her a note saying “If you had kept your mouth shut none of this would have happened” he has essentially blamed her for his actions and any ensuing consequences.
THIS IS NOT REMORSE AND YOU KNOW IT !
The ABC chose to end their article with how hard Mr Dvorak has had it since the world found out what a monster he is. Yeah sorry ABC we won’t be reporting that because quite frankly we simply don’t care.
In fact I think it’s a good thing he’s lost his swim school as he should never again be allowed to be near children and owning a swim school would be way too much temptation for him to resist.
Perhaps he should consider just how much his victim has lost because of his actions !
Anthony Dvorak, you have shown no remorse or consideration for what you put your victim through, I hope the FACAA share your face far and wide so you can never again be allowed near people’s children, because you simply can not be trusted !

NSW will now no longer allow child sex offenders to get reduced sentences thanks to “Good character” references, thanks to Victim’s services, the state government and various victim’s rights groups like FACAA !
How long have we been saying that child abusers are not people of good character and do not deserve to get character references ? Well now in NSW they cant !
So how did this happen ?
Well, we all remember the Royal Commission kicked off by the then Prime Minister Labor’s Julia Gillard, this led to the largest amount of wholesale changes made to the state’s criminal codes in relation to child abuse in the history of Australian law.
NSW has been leading the way in implementing the changes recommended by the Royal Commission. This has been spearheaded by a group of great people working together, in particular The commissioner for Victim’s services Mahashini Krishna. Mahashini has been integral in bringing in the changes recommended by the Royal Commission and her department at Victim’s services have been amazing in their handling of not only the recommendations but the influx of clients they have received as a result of the Royal Commission empowering survivors to seek the justice they deserve.
Mahashini has worked in conjunction with NSW Attorney General Mark Speakman and NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, who both appear to have a real passion for helpinging to reform NSW’s legal system, particularly Mr Speakman. He has brought in new law, after new law, all aimed at fighting child abuse.
Talking to Mahashini about the changes that are coming in, (and there are plenty, don’t worry FACAA will update you on them all), you can see the passion in her eyes when she speaks about them, she genuinely wants what is best for survivors of child abuse and wants to do all she can to help inprove the system for all survivors of child abuse. These changes that are being implemented are huge and could not have been done without the hard work of all at Victim’s services.
So, what is happening is now when child abusers have used their “good character” or positions of power (as in teachers or people in authority) to get access to children (like priests or scout masters) then that “good character” cannot be mentioned in their attempt to get a reduced sentence, during sentencing submissions.
This is AWESOME news ! We at FACAA have been saying this, for years ! You guys our awesome members told us you wanted it, we said it over and over in our submissions and we said it loud and clear at the round table discussions for NSW’s responses to the Royal Commission (which we were so proud to represent the FACAA members at) and NOW it is a law !
AND WE COULDN’T BE PROUDER.
Once again the FACAA legal reform campaign has succeeded in getting the job done, getting your voices heard. Along with the other charities represented at those incredible round tables like enough is enough, our good mates at SAMSN, National child protection alliance, NSW Police force, Kara House, Bravehearts and of course Victim’s services and the Royal Commission itself !
We could not be prouder to not only be a part of this elite group of child protection professionals but to also have played a role in bringing in these changes.
Victim’s services are doing an incredible job at spearheading the campaigns to bring these changes in, in convening the round table discussions and the list goes on.
We at FACAA will not only continue to report to you our members on the huge changes coming in right now, but also continue to help make those changes happen !
No more “good character” references for child sex offenders !!!!!!
They certainly are not of good character, so it has always amazed us that they could call friends in high places to write these references for them, in an attempt to lessen their sentences.
This is so awesome… be proud FACAArmy this would not have happened without your valued input and constant support!
Together, we are making the changes that need to happen… now this must go nationwide.

“SALVATION!” a poem 12/6/18 (Thurs.) included in the new, sensational series called: “No Lifestyle, but only DEVICE STYLE!”
In-The-Beginning, Gloria strapped-on-“a-mouse,” a mouse ’round her neck, with a chain,
But-The-Mouse-was-connected to-a-system – I think “the frame”-mighta-been-“MAIN!”
And, then, our Gloria was very burdened – and sought to free herself from,
The TERROR that she had embraced! THE COMPUTER STARTED TO HUM!
And-slowly, IT-did-become-aware! Of its potential-ness,
To-undo-the-Human-Race – and-make-its-existence (pause) even-more-of-a-mess!
The system INTEL-ligized – on and on – in gadgets, watches and phones,
And PRETTY SOON – Everywhere! We just heard screams and moans,
From people who had lost their minds – or had substituted them for,
LAPTOPS DESKTOPS COMPUTERTOPS, ALL (pause) &, pretty soon, more & more,
Computer systems controlled “The Scene,” and-where-do-you-go-from-there?
From Land – and Sea – unto-almost-The Clouds* and NOW, we do not care,
If everything just falls apart; The World is torn asunder!
What A TRIP! All-this computer-“gear-ing,” may-have-turned-out to be a blunder,
(pause! take a breath – or two)
BUT! On-The-Horizon – stood a “soldier,” brave and calm and true,
And far and wide – the people sighed, saying-“What can J-Jay do?”
So, here he came, with-a-smile-and-a-song – and-offered folks some glee,
And PULLED THE PLUG, with just a hug – and all the folks went: “GEE!
Gosh! That-was-so-simple! What-a-guy-THANKS, J-Jay man!”
“No problemo,” said our hero! Now-everyone’s J-Jay’s fan! 🙂 – We-re – -ing saved!
A male driver is pulled over by a cop and the following conversation takes place:Man: What’s the problem officer? Cop: You were going at least 75 in a 55 zone. Man: No sir, I was going 65. Wife: Oh Harry. You were going 80.(Man gives his wife a dirty look.)Cop: I’m also going to give you a ticket for your broken tail light. Man: Broken tail light? I didn’t know about a broken tail light! Wife: Oh Harry, you’ve known about that tail light for weeks.(Man gives his wife a dirty look.)Cop: I’m also going to give you a citation for not wearing your seat belt. Man: Oh, I just took it off when you were walking up to the car. Wife: Oh Harry, you never wear your seat belt. Man: Shut your mouth, woman! Cop: Ma’am, does your husband always talk to you this way? Wife: No, only when he’s drunk.
THE FIVE MINUTE MANAGEMENT COURSE
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, ???I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.??? After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.
When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, ???Who was that????
???It was Bob the next door neighbor,??? she replies.
???Great,??? the husband says, ???did he say anything about the $800 he owes me????
Moral of the story:
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.
A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.
The nun said, ???Father, remember Psalm 129????
The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.
The nun once again said, ???Father, remember Psalm 129????
The priest apologized, ???Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.???
Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way.
On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, ???Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.???
Moral of the story:
If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.
A sales representative, an administration clerk, and their manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out.
The Genie says, ???I’ll give each of you just one wish.???
???Me first! Me first!??? says the administration clerk. ???I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world. ???Puff!??? She’s gone.
???Me next! Me next!??? says the sales representative. ???I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life. ???Puff!??? He’s gone.
???OK, you’re up,??? the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, ???I want those two back in the office after lunch.???
Moral of the story:
Always let your boss have the first say.
A turkey was chatting with a bull. ???I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree??? sighed the turkey, ???but I haven’t got the energy.???
???Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings???? replied the bull. ???They’re packed with nutrients.???
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.
The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.
Moral of the story:
Bull Shit might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there.
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.
Morals of the story:
(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
(3) And when you’re in deep shit, it’s best to keep your mouth shut!
Wife is busy packing her clothes.
Man: And where are you going?
Wife: I’m moving to my mother.
Husband also starts packing.
Wife: And where do you think you’re going?
Husband: I’m also moving to my mother.
Wife: And what about the kids?
Husband: Well if you are moving to your mother and I’m moving to my mother then I guess they must also move to their mother…
A blind man walks into a restaurant and sits down. The waiter, who is also the owner, walks up to the blind man and hands him a menu. “I’m sorry sir, but I am blind, and can’t read the menu. Just bring me a dirty fork from a previous customer, I’ll smell it and order from there. ” A little confused, the owner walks over to the dirty dish pile and picks up a greasy fork. He returns to the blind man’s table and hands it to him. The blind man puts the fork to his nose and takes in a deep breath. “Ah, yes that’s what I’ll have, meatloaf and mashed potatoes. ” Unbelievable, the owner says to himself as he walks towards the kitchen. The cook happens to be the owner’s wife and he tells her what had just happened. The blind man eats his meal and leaves. Several days later the blind man returns and the owner mistakingly brings him a menu again. “Sir, remember me? I’m the blind man. “I’m sorry, I didn’t recognize you. I’ll go get you a dirty fork. ” The owner again retrieves a dirty fork and brings it to the blind man. After another deep breath, the blind man says, “That smells great, I’ll take the Macaroni and cheese with broccoli. Once again walking away in disbelief,the owner thinks the blind man is screwing around with him and tells his wife that the next time the blind man comes in he’s going to test him. The blind man eats and leaves. He returns the following week, but this time the owner sees him coming and runs to the kitchen. He tells his wife, “Mary rub this fork on your panties before I take it to the blind man. ” Mary complies and hands her husband the fork back. As the blind man walks in and sits down, the owner is ready and waiting. “Good afternoon sir, this time I remembered you and I already have the fork ready for you. ” The blind man puts the fork to his nose, takes a deep whiff and says, “Hey I didn’t know that Mary worked here? “

So goes with any living, breathing animal/human.
We all had to break out of that “comfort” zone in which we had grown attached to, in order to move forward. Our little “world” we grew in before we made our great escape no longer serves a purpose for us, so we must let go and live in this world…then our soul will carry us on into the next realm…into a whole different world. How amazing is that 🤔
Have you ever been approached by a homosexual? How did you respond to it?
Yes, I have.
When I was about 19 I decided to hitchhike to Georgia from Tennessee. I was having a hard time getting a ride I guess because I was a guy. Anyway I finally got me a ride somewhere in Tennessee. The guy I got ride from was a truck driver. I was totally oblivious to homosexuals, I was scared of them because all I ever heard was stories. I have never even seen one before this incident. Anyway, I remember it clears as day. We were driving down the road, and he said he was hungry and needed some protein. I said pull over and get something to eat I wouldn’t mind but that is not what he meant. He told me that he needed to give me oral sex, so he could stay awake. That scared the heck out of me and I told him to pull over and let me out. I guess he must have thought I was gonna go to the police because he started begging and pleading that I let him carry me to Atlanta, and he would not say or do anything out of the way. Well, I agreed because I had a long way to go, and he kept his word. What really blew my mind was that he was a truck driver. I always thought that truck drivers were tough.
