But the pain of Corsey's victims go further than sexual abuse. In 2000, the former track coach's son fatally stabbed Chris Bensinger, the 18-year-old boyfriend of one of his father's sexual abuse victims. Chris Bensinger was convicted of manslaughter in 2007 and sentenced to prison time. He was released from incarceration about a year later.
Thankfully, Corsey's victim has not allowed her abuse to stop her pursuit for justice. Instead, Katlyn Pagaduan, who has chosen to make her name public, fought for change at the highest levels, working with Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey to pass legislation in hopes of preventing further sexual abuse from occurring. Pagaduan was instrumental to the 2015 passage of the Passing-the-Trash Ban, a bill targeting schools who assist known sexual molesters in gaining new employment in education.
