Update: Seymour Avenue Horror *Ariel Castro pleads guilty in a plea deal; Sentenced to LWOP plus 1000 years*

Statement released by the survivors:

“Amanda, Gina, and Michelle are relieved by today’s plea. They are satisfied by this resolution to the case, and are looking forward to having these legal proceedings draw to a final close in the near future. They continue to desire their privacy. They do not wish to speak to the media or anyone else, and they thank people for continuing to respect their privacy as they grow stronger. They are immensely grateful for the support they have received from family, friends, and the donations to the Cleveland Courage Fund.”

Personally, I think this is a good thing. Most of all for the survivors. Now, they can move past this and go forward. It will always be with them, but I am sure that each day they grow stronger. I admire them for their strength through all of this. Now they will not have to testify to all that happened, and this is good for them. Testifying meant reliving it, the whole awful experience for each of them. I hope that the media and their community will allow them the privacy they need.
