"I was a hell of a good artist, an illustrator. I loved to draw and now I can barely write my name. The life I once had has been taken away from me forever. I was not wearing high heels the night I got jumped, Your Honor, but I did mention that on occasion I might try them on, and because I made that comment they beat me severely. They jumped me from behind and kicked every memory I ever had out of my head. Now I admit I had been drinking and I was drunk, and the way I responded wasn't smart. But now I know I... I know what I should have done. I should have just kept my mouth shut and walked away, but I didn't. And I got beaten. Beaten within an inch of my life. Beaten for no reason. And I needed you to know that, Your Honor, because... whatever sentence you decide to give these... so-called people... I want them to know they can't hurt me anymore. They can't hurt me anymore. Because they're gone. They're gone for good. But I'm still here. And I have my friends. And I have my town, and my pictures, and I'll be okay."
