Bridgewater woman regrets reporting sexual assault after attacker released on appeal
A Bridgewater woman waiting for a Nova Scotia court of appeal hearing of her sexual assault case regrets reporting it. Jared Beck-Wentzell was given 2 1/2 years in prison after spouse Shannon Graham accused him. He was released pending an appeal due to “honest but mistaken belief in consent”. Graham feels like she has little to show for her two-year journey through the legal system, and would’ve sought help she needed rather than getting authorities involved.
