One woman said Addrisi’s testimony changed her 8-year-old daughter’s life. Her daughter began to be abused when she was five.

"My daughter started crying, and then looked at me and said, ‘Momma she is amazing, and an inspiration. If she can overcome this and move forward, so will I. I will be ok,’” the woman wrote.
