Haidl Gang Rape's Jane Doe Gives Key Speech at OC's Victims' Rights March in Santa Ana

Alisa, one tough woman
She was so excited last night that she didn't get much sleep, but the sexual assault victim known for a decade only as "Jane Doe" in the infamous Haidl Gang Rape case delivered a potent, uplifting speech today at the 4th annual Orange County Victims' Rights March and Rally in Santa Ana.

Sharing the stage with Los Angeles-based U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte, District Attorney Tony Rackauckas, Santa Ana Police Chief Paul Walters and state Assemblyman Chris Norby, a poised Doe announced her first name, Alisa, and declared herself "a survivor."

"Today, I am no longer a lost, scared little girl," said Doe. "I'm no longer ashamed of who I am or what happened to me. Instead, I can say that I am proud of the woman I have become."

(I'm proud of you too.)

Doe earned several spontaneous rounds of applause during her remarks and won the praise of Rackauckas, who said that he, like Superior Court Judge Francisco P. Briseno--the trial judge in the Haidl case that garnered international attention, was in awe of Doe's strength and courage.

Don Haidl--a dishonest San Bernardino County used car salesman turned ultra wealthy Orange County assistant sheriff at the time of the sexual assault orchestrated largely by his brat son, Greg--paid millions of dollars for a win-at-all-costs legal defense that worked overtime to intimidate a 16-year-old Doe into dropping the case.

Donna Bjoin, the sister of 1983 murder victim Katherine O'Connell, told the crowd of several hundred at the county's Old Red Courthouse that crime victims can't "give up hope" because, like in her sister's case, justice is sometimes slow. Homicide prosecutor Dan Wagner won a conviction against O'Connell's killer in 2011.

In his own remarks, Rackauckas blasted "dishonest" political efforts to weaken California's Three Strikes law, fight tough anti-sex offender laws and eliminate the death penalty.

"We have learned over and over again that we can never let our guard down and we must continue our fight," the DA said.

Brownsharon109, your sadism is heart-breaking. Does knowing what happened to Jane Doe make her seem contaminated to you?  Did somebody hurt you and it makes you hate yourself?

Dr Beth Lewis if one of your family members conducted them self as JANE DOE did you would be posting something different, or let me put it this way I sure hope to god you would!!!! Lets set the record straight regarding JANE DOE, She is not a victim and will never be a victim in this case. A victim DOES NOT do what she did. Streets statement best outlines what this sad little piece female really is all about.What she did is a disgrace to the female gender.

This issue is about violence in our society; much of it against women. This is not about drug abuse, growing up, bad choices, or any other topic. Rape is a violent crime and has nothing to do with sexual conduct. It is a vile physical extreme assault often ending in death. there is no other explanation, and there are no contributing factors.Since 2008, normal spirited public debate has completely deteriorated to a level not seen since the '50's. All kinds of op-eds can be written to explain it; but it is really only about hatred of people of color and women's rights.We are RACIST BIGOTS and COWARDLY BULLIES ; ignorant, dangerous, and an embarrassment  in the civilized world.

I commend Alisa for reclaiming her identity and her dignity, which was always there within her!

I know that Alisa will be a powerful influence to young teenagers about the dangers of binge drinking or drug abuse, if she so chooses.

Again I commend Alisa for her dignity and courage!

Alisa should use her experience to speak to the teenagers about the consequences of under age drinking. Unfortunately it would fall on deaf ears like it does about drinking and driving.  Youngsters feel immortal.

@Sandenberg You're right. She got a big settlement. And she surely deserved it.

Hey, piece of shit: how about you put up your real name? That way, you'll have to stand by your pathetic remarks. Of course, you don't have the balls to do such a thing, as most supporters of the Haidl morons are as pathetic and cowardly as them.

 Fuck you, you sick piece of shit. And shame on OC Weekly, I reported these posts 5 hours ago and they are still here.

 Who are you to dictate what she should do? She's using her experience to speak out about RAPE. That's what happened to her, rape, not underage drinking. She was drugged and gang raped, and she is amazing for having the courage to speak out about that. She will help many other young women by doing so.

Weare: We keep such comments up, because people should know the vileness that is still out there. For situations like these, a "fuck you" to said idiots is not only allowed and encouraged, but required of all good people.

@Streets What if that was your sister, or you mother or even god forbid your daughter one day. If it was someone close to u ...u would be posting something different.

You are not even on topic. The number of people out there seeking attention like this is a reflection of a more serious problem in our society: our basic moral compass has been severely damaged. There actually huge amounts of money being spent from organizations and private individuals that have a stake in this destruction.

I'm not supporting what happened to her, but the fact of the matter was that she was a drunk, drug addict and whore...................maybe she can help other girls by stating the facts of her life.........

she might have had that reputation.  you can say what you want about her charactor from your keyboard.  it really doesn't soil her reputation because your comments from your veiled identity and location mean nothing.  i wouldn't know or care about her past lifestyle.  nothing entitles anyone to rape another.  perhaps you have no mother, sisters or other women in your life who matter to you.  you just might be some misogynistic troll.
