It came during a parole hearing for Michael Doporto, a Carbon County man who was convicted of sexually abusing young girls nearly twenty years ago.
Doporto has been behind prison walls for 20 years. his victims say they're serving life sentences after being raped and sexually abused by him.
His victims, some who didn't want to be identified were children when this happened in Carbon County.
"He stole my innocence and he hurt my body that I prayed to God to die," said a victim. 'I could not see that I was going to survive. I was threatened not to tell.
Another victim spoke that he not only molested her but her sister as well.
"Michael started molesting me at the age of four and until I was eleven," said one victim. "Sometimes two or three times a week."
Doporto is 64 years old now and is scheduled to be released next month. But the board of pardons is reconsidering that based on Thursday's testimony from victims who never got an opportunity to speak during his last parole hearing.
"If you let him out he's going to get my nieces and my cousins," said another victim. "He's going to go to churches and he's going to get them there."
Doporto offered to go to a half-way house for more sex offender treatment. He also offered an apology.
"I know you must feel anger and nothing but contempt towards me but don't blame my family," says Doporto. "It's me and it will always be me.
Outside the prison walls, some of the victims chose to speak openly about the impact doporto's had on their lives.
"I can't have another baby I never had a relationship a decent one a healthy one. I've never been married," Tennille MacLean says..
Azure Davis says she's hoping the Board of Pardons will get the message that there's too many living in fear and others may be in danger.
azure davisi don't want anyone to go through what I went through. it's horrible it's horrid. it's depressing.
The hearing officer told Doporto that the entire board will make a final decision within three weeks.
