victim impact statement quotes

Brianne Randall:

“I was a 17-year-old that reported your abuse to police in 2004. You used my vulnerability at the time to sexually abuse me. I reported you to police immediately and had a rape kit done … you had the audacity to tell [police] I misunderstood the treatment because I wasn’t comfortable with my body. How dare you? Sadly they took your word instead of mine.”

Jordyn Wieber:

“Even though I am a victim, I won’t live my life as one. I am an Olympian.”

Mattie Larson:

Makayla Thrush:

“Nobody should ever have to question their doctor, especially one who was the doctor for the US Olympic team.”
