Fri. 10:13pm: Former JFK student reveals ID

WARREN – Michael Munno says someday he’ll be able to forgive the Franciscan brother he says sexually abused him in high school.

He decided to make his identity known Friday in an effort to help others who have suffered through sexual and other kinds of abuse.

Munno said he knows that to heal he needs to forgive Brother Stephen Baker, who is accused of abusing at least 12 former students at John F. Kennedy High School in the mid-1980s.

“The only way to get over this is to forgive the person who did that to me,” Munno said Friday in an interview with the Tribune and its newspartner WYTV 33. “I’m not quite there yet but I’ll get there.”
