Written on the Eve of the Plea Hearing
Tomorrow is the plea hearing for my case. It is also, the one year anniversary of the evening that lead into my assault. In preparation, I am working to write my Victim Impact Statement which I will read to the court should he accept a plea.
But, how does one begin to address the courts about what’s happened to them and how it’s affected them? And how does one speak to the one who raped them?
**I have eliminated my Victim Impact Statement from this post, as it can now be read in full in my post entitled “Final Plea.”
