John Monacelli, a therapist who worked in the Sheboygan area, has been accused of sexually assaulting a 29-year-old-man and a 39-year-old-woman. Both victims claimed Monacelli forced them to recount past acts of sexual abuse and reenact them with him.
Monacelli explained to the patients that recounting the sexual acts was the only way they would ever get over their memories and prolonged drug abuse.
Monacelli threatened both victims, telling them if they did not stay quiet he would have the man sent back to jail, and would prevent the woman from obtaining custody of her children.
The 29-year-old man claims he told Monacelli he did not feel comfortable performing the sexual acts, and Monacelli fired back with, “No one will believe a junkie like you over me.”
