“He had crushed a part of my spirit,” Miriam Haley said during the hearing. “If he was not convicted of rape & sexual assault by this jury it would have happened again & again. I’m relieved there are women who are safer because he is not out there.”
“It is time people who rape other people pay with their life and the life they took,” Jessica Mann added. “I have found my voice.”
