When I was 14, a massage video gave me a taste of what it’s like to be a woman in the NFL
The video of a massage therapist taking the woman to a bedroom was the start of a friendship that changed my life.
The woman, a former high school cheerleader named Lisa De La Torre, was 19 when she was raped and sexually assaulted by a former player.
In 2013, she became pregnant by the former player, who was eventually convicted of the crime.
The rape and sexual assault of De La Toro left her with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety.
But when the former football player began abusing De La Torres again, she sought professional help.
Her story made national news.
The man convicted of raping and assaulting De LaTorres has been in prison since his conviction.
Now, the woman, who now calls herself The Lady in the House, wants a chance to meet the convicted sex offender and share her story.
Lisa De La Tromre, who became The Lady In The House after her friend was raped, has a message for the man convicted in her case.
The victim in the video is not a woman who is afraid to talk about it.
This is a man who is in prison, who abused me, who is a sexual predator.
The only thing that he wants is for me to be quiet about this.
The convicted sex abuser and former NFL player pleaded guilty to first-degree rape in June, according to The Associated Press.
His plea was announced Friday and was a result of the woman’s advocacy.
“This is the first time that I have heard of anyone actually receiving a sentence for this crime,” Lisa De Torre said.
“It’s just so inspiring to hear the message that she’s receiving.”
Her case is not unique.
The Associated Report reported that the number of women and girls reporting sexual abuse or harassment by former NFL players is rising each year.
“It’s definitely a wake-up call,” De La Teres said.
She’s hoping that by sharing her story, other women can be inspired to come forward and report the crimes.
“The best thing that could happen for us is if we’re able to bring awareness to other women who are experiencing the same thing,” De Torres said of sharing her experience.
De La Torres has already made several efforts to reach out to the man.
She told me I have a lot of respect for the other women in the locker room.
I just hope that they can speak out.
We are not the only ones out there.
