COLUMBUS, Ohio - A woman who was raped inside a bathroom at Columbus State Community College said on Monday that seeing her attacker being taken away in handcuffs was the ultimate closure.

Her attacker, Taj Wedderburn, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the crime that occurred nearly one year ago, 10TV's Ashleigh Barry reported.

"I saw him in the mirror of the bathroom and realized that somebody had a hold of my neck because (he) cut my air off so quickly," said the woman who requested anonymity.

The woman said that her attacker dragged her into a stall and was so determined when he forced himself on her. She thought it would be the last day she would see the faces of her four children.

"He grabbed his pocket, like I thought he was going for something and I just said,'OK. Please don't hurt me. Don't kill me. I have kids. Please,'" the woman said. "That's all I could think of was my kids and that I was murdered on campus."

Wedderburn was arrested less than 24 hours after the attack. He admitted to the rape and pleaded guilty in court, Barry reported.

The woman said that despite the nightmares, flashbacks and even near separation from her husband that she forgives the man whom she said changed her life and sense of security forever.

"I know that God wouldn't forgive me if I didn't forgive him," the woman said. "It was hard to do. It's not me doing it it's the God in me doing it."

Police encourage students, especially those new to campuses, to take a self-defense class.

Have to forgive and move on. We live in a world with so many mean human beings. I hope that no one is ever raped again in this world. We shall see.

It will be harder to forgive Twin Valley Behavioral (State Government agency) that cleared this guy of mental problems just "days" before he attacked this poor woman. This is typical of state government employees who were evidently half asleep when they processed and released this guy. Government cares more about the “rights” of criminals than they do for tax payers who should be safe on a college campus.

She probably forgave the attacker because she really liked it and had an orgasm.

At the prices colleges are charging female students shouldn't have to worry about being raped in bathrooms by person who should have NEVER been released. While this woman shows amazing forgiveness the person / department who signed the release form for this mental patient needs to be held accountable.

Decent citizens need to be armed. And to kill the scum bag predators. It's as simple as that.

Not even a bathroom is safe these days. And with the various new (so called) hate crimes; transgenders will have access to children with what can only be a pedophile's dream.

Why would anyone get upset that the a victim forgave the attacker? This is beyond my comprehension? I don't think I could forgive so quickly but given that I would have a choice to live with hate of the person the rest of my life........you morons don't understand that forgiveness is for the forgiver. It releases the victim to live instead of seeth with hate 24/7 the rest of thier lives.

What do all these attacks have in common?

This woman raped at Columbus state, the jogger Jane Jurgens, 55 stabbed to death while running at Blendon Woods and Rikki Witacher who was stabbed in the parking lot of LA Fitness on the West Side of Columbus.

All where women alone.

All where attacks from young Black Males with criminal histories and recently discharged without being rehabilitated whatsoever by liberal types.

Not likely, the woman said that she has nightmares and flash backs of the horror. If anything she will have fear and loathing for Black Males the majority of whom are innocent yet at stigmatized by a powerful and vocal criminal element that is growing like a cancer in the Black Community.

Great post Collins.

Obama should be harder on his supporters who are the primary perpetuators of all this violence.

The universities stand for no moral codes and are unsafe zones for rape and even murder with two murdered at Ohio State this year.
