For the first time since the November 16, 2023 incident, the alleged victim in the domestic assault case against City Councilor Corey Robinson is speaking out.

On December 2, 2023 privileged and confidential exhibit photos of my person were also made available to the public by way of another article written by the same reporter and published by The Lowell Sun.
Through my expression of the above grievances and sentiments, I release the following statement:
