“I was extremely angry,” Fu told KLAS-TV. "I know he’s old, but that doesn’t change anything like that, doesn’t change the damage that he caused, the horrific effects that I had to live through for decades, and it was not justice at all.”
Gross was originally charged with 26 felony counts related to sexual abuse, but he entered an Alford plea — when a suspect pleads guilty because of the likelihood of a conviction while not admitting to the crime — and got the charged reduced to attempted lewdness with a child under the age of 14.
In light of the Alford plea, Gross was issued a suspended sentence on Oct. 2, meaning he won't serve prison time and will be put on probation, which he must not violate to avoid prison time, 60-180 months in the Nevada Department of Corrections.

“It just doesn’t make sense how someone can abuse a child multiple times and just walk away without any prison time,” Fu said of the sentencing.
Fu acknowledged that the lawyers may have believed that the case was weak because of the amount of time that had passed.
Fu contacted police after his wife showed him a news article about sexual abuse.
“I really tried to put it away and move on and be strong, but as you get older, you start to realize what went wrong more, and I saw exactly where my problems were coming from,” Fu said.
According to an arrest report, following Gross' sentencing, he stood up to walk out of the courtroom with his wife and attorney. Fu then allegedly punched Gross, knocking him to the floor.

Gross said he lost consciousness for a period of time and was taken to the hospital, the arrest reported states.
