And I have changed. I am not the person I was 10 years ago. I have four years’ of sobriety. I’m proud of that.”
Key pieces of information were not mentioned regarding the pattern of victims being drugged in Harrisburg night clubs. There was also no mention of the victim’s claim about a pre-arranged acquaintance between the nightclub security and her attacker.
