(Video submission, Exhibit 3, no transcript)
MS. POVILAITIS: The next survivor you will hear from has agreed to be publicly identified. She lives out of country and has sent us over the weekend this video asking us to display it on her behalf.
Her name is Jessica Chedler Rodriguez.
THE COURT: Okay. And so this is a video?
Is it marked as Exhibit 3?
MS. POVILAITIS: I believe it’s Exhibit 3, yes.
THE COURT: Exhibit 3 is admitted, and Ms. Hamlin will not take this down since it is an exhibit. You may proceed.[Video played]
THE COURT: Please tell Jessica her message on accountability has been heard, and she is an absolute survivor who is strong and has such strength to help stop predators, and she joins the army of sister survivors. I heard her. Thank you.
