Taylor Swift has issued a statement thanking her legal team, the judge, and the jury for
“fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault.”
“I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this,” the statement, obtained by CNN, continued. “My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves.”
After six days in court, a verdict has been reached in the Taylor Swiftgroping trial. On Monday (August 14), a jury of six women and two men unanimously decided that former radio DJ David Mueller assaulted and battered Swift at a meet-and-greet in June 2013.
