  • I was actually took off his shop.

  • And, um, when it kind of popped up on my screen for a friend and I, uh, I just sat down and I started crying, and then I had to go out into the street cause I don't want to be crying in the coffee shop.

  • Must have been difficult.

  • Well, yes.

  • I mean, it was, uh, it was terrifying, you know, terrifying.

  • What do you think it means for the accusers and the movie?

  • Well, I just think that it gives me hope that we're making progress that, um, this verdict, um I just feel like we're being educated about the reality of sexual assaults and sexual assault victims and what that, uh, many times involves, um, and that a lot of sexual assault victims do know their attacker and they have some sort of relation to that person, and that brings with it Ah, ah, whole nother layer of emotional confusion that you need to process through.

  • She's one of the two victims in the Los Angeles case that will follow coming.

  • Yeah, and Annabella Shoura, my client, who is really a role model and courage and very inspiring.

  • And and she did what she did.

  • She testified she made many sacrifices because it was in the interests of justice to do.

  • How do you gauge the not guilty verdict on those charges?

  • You know, it's a very high burden of proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and, um, you know, she told her truth.

  • She stood in her truth.

  • She refused to be intimidated, and, uh, and she was very authentic.
