John Wayne Bobbitt was acquitted on the rape charge. Lorena Bobbitt stated in a court hearing that, after coming home that evening, her husband raped her.
After he then went to sleep, she got out of bed and went to the kitchen for a drink of water. She then grabbed an 8-inch carving knife on the kitchen counter, returned to their bedroom, pulled back the bed sheets and cut off his penis. After this, Lorena left the apartment with the severed appendage and drove away in her car.
After a while driving and struggling to steer with one hand, she threw it out the window into a roadside field. She eventually stopped and calledtelling them what had happened and where the penis could be found.
John Bobbitt's penis was found after an exhaustive search, and after being washed with antiseptic and packed in saline iceit was re-attached in the hospital where he was treated.
The operation took nine and a half hours. When Lorena Bobbitt was arrested the night of June 23, she told the police, "He always have orgasm [sic], and he doesn't wait for me ever to have orgasm. He's selfish. During the trial, the couple revealed details of their volatile relationship and the events that led to the assault. Lorena stated that John sexually, physically, and emotionally abused her during their marriage. She said that he flaunted his infidelities and forced her to have an abortion.
Her defense attorneys, who included the defense lawyer Blair D. Howard, maintained that his constant abuse eventually caused her to "snap" because she was suffering from clinical depression and a possible bout of post traumatic stress disorder due to the abuse.
Lorena testified that John had raped her and physically battered her on multiple occasions prior to the evening of the severing of his penis, that they lacked financial stability, and that he stole her earnings and spent the proceeds. Both the prosecution and defense sides conceded that he had demonstrated a history of abuse toward her and that this abuse created a context for the assault.
Expert witnesses for both the prosecution and the defense testified that "he had mentally and physically battered her; that the abuse was escalating; and that, byshe lived in constant fear of him. One expert witness testified that "Lorena believed and was immobilized by John's threat, 'I will find you, whether we're divorced or separated. And wherever I find you, I'll have sex with you whenever I want to. John Bobbitt was later acquitted of rape.
After seven hours of deliberation, the jury found Lorena not guilty due to insanity causing an irresistible impulse to sexually wound John. As a result, she could not be held liable for her actions. Inafter six years of marriage, John and Lorena divorced. After the incident, John attempted to generate money from his renown by forming a band, The Severed Parts, to pay his mounting medical and legal bills, although the band was unsuccessful and failed to generate enough money.Lorena rallied from an hole to win in the District A opener for both teams.
Mosley was Troy's steadiest attacker at the net. LORENA — Like many high school gyms, the one belonging to Lorena features a cage over the clocks on the walls, to protect them from getting hit by a stray ball. Despite falling behindthe Lady Leopards scratched back to seize both the momentum and the victory,over the tough and tenacious Troy Trojanettes in the District A volleyball opener for both teams on Tuesday.
After her team dropped the first two sets in hard-fought squabbles, Lorena coach Amanda Gonzales kept preaching a resurrection message to her team. Troy overall, district actually positioned itself well for the sweep, as it moved to match point with a lead in the third set following a Graycee Mosley service ace.
But Lorenakept grinding. The Lady Leopards scored the next three points to finally build up some downhill momentum on its side. As usual, Abbie Tuyo proved a reliable source of killing power for the Lorena attack. Setter Meg Kucera hustled around the court to set up her attackers, often making running bump sets when the initial serve-receive pass was a bit off-target. Everybody stepped up in a big way, but I think Meg did a fantastic job of leading that offense.
As in the third set, Troy again gave away a few points late in the fourth when its smashes sailed either deep or wide. We chose to let them outplay us.
Troy Takes Down Lorena 49-41
We have the skill. I really need a break. Lorena jumped out to a brisk lead after a Jones tip, a Jespersen spike and an ace from Kucera that skimmed the top of the net and dropped in safely for the point.
The Trojanettes pushed back by scoring the next four points in a row, as Mosley punctuated the run with one of her typical, emphatic exclamation points. The teams fought to an tie late, then Troy went up on a Mosley kill that touched nothing but the floor after she smacked it.
Jespersen came through with a timely tip for Lorena to tie the score at Then Tuyo gave Lorena the lead for good with a kill, and the Lady Leopards pushed to match point when Mosley tagged one short into the net. On the final volley, the teams whipped the ball back and forth before Troy was whistled for a lift, clinching the win for the Lady Leopards.
We fixed things that we needed to for our game. We were ready for the scouting report for them. And we knew we were ready for today. And the girls never, ever gave up on it, and never gave up on each other. Could not be more proud of that. Early on in the match, Troy played with the kind of power and precision that marked their state tournament run of two seasons ago.
One of the new heroes was freshman Kaycee Cavanaugh. She looked far too smooth and poised to be a ninth grader, whether she was cooking up sizzlers at the pins or from the service line. Cavanaugh was shaken up on a play in the early going, but stayed on the court and kept producing throughout. It would be nice to bring in some more hitters that are more consistent.

It became a favorite of soldiers of both sides during the American Civil War. Her parents being deceased, Miss Blocksom lived with her brother-in-law and sister, Mr. Henry Blandy. The family attended the Universalist Church in Zanesville where the Rev.
Henry DeLafayette Webster was the minister. Miss Blocksom caught the eye of the young preacher and his feelings became more than just pastoral. Henry Blandy and his brother Fred were co-owners of the Blandy foundry in Zanesville. As a wealthy and prominent member of the community he could not see his sister-in-law becoming romantically attached to a poor preacher and so stepped in to put an end to the relationship. Miss Blocksom told Webster that they must part and gave him a letter containing the line "If we try, we may forget," which found its way into the song.
The brokenhearted Mr. Webster resigned his pastorate and left Zanesville. InWebster met Joseph P. Webster who later composed the music of "[In the] Sweet By-and-By". Webster was looking for lyrics to a song he was writing and Henry Webster responded by writing a ballad about his lost love, changing her name from Ella to Bertha.
The composer required a three-syllable name and Henry Webster changed the name again, this time to Lorena. The song was published in by Higgins Brothers of Chicago and soon was known across America. She died in and is buried at Woodland Cemetery in Ironton, Ohio. Webster also married, fathered four children, and eventually became the minister of a Unitarian church in Chicago, Illinois.
He died inand is buried in Chicago. During the American Civil Warsoldiers on both sides of the conflict thought of their wives and girlfriends back home when they heard the song "Lorena". One Confederate officer even attributed the South's defeat to the song. He reasoned that upon hearing the mournful ballad the soldiers grew so homesick that they lost their effectiveness as a fighting force.
Oh, the years creep slowly by, Lorena, The snow is on the ground again. The sun's low down the sky, Lorena, The frost gleams where the flow'rs have been. But the heart beats on as warmly now, As when the summer days were nigh. Oh, the sun can never dip so low A-down affection's cloudless sky. A hundred months have passed, Lorena, Since last I held that hand in mine, And felt the pulse beat fast, Lorena, Though mine beat faster far than thine.
A hundred months, 'twas flowery May, When up the hilly slope we climbed, To watch the dying of the day, And hear the distant church bells chime. We loved each other then, Lorena, Far more than we ever dared to tell; And what we might have been, Lorena, Had but our loving prospered well -- But then, 'tis past, the years are gone, I'll not call up their shadowy forms; I'll say to them, "Lost years, sleep on!
Sleep on! I care not to repeat, The hopes that could not last, Lorena, They lived, but only lived to cheat. I would not cause e'en one regret To rankle in your bosom now; For "if we try we may forget," Were words of thine long years ago. Yes, these were words of thine, Lorena, They burn within my memory yet; They touched some tender chords, Lorena, Which thrill and tremble with regret.
It matters little now, Lorena, The past is in the eternal past; Our heads will soon lie low, Lorena, Life's tide is ebbing out so fast. There is a Future! O, thank God!Lorena became a national joke, her suffering ignored by the male-dominated press.
A Woman In Trouble. Acquitted of rape, John became a celebrity while Lorena stood trial, facing decades in prison. TV cameras recorded her ordeal as prosecutors attacked her relentlessly-a jealous shrew, a liar and thief. But though John proved a poor witness, and her lawyers demonstrated years of domestic abuse, it looked doubtful that they could prove she was legally insane the night she cut off his penis.
An Irresistible Impulse. But was she legally insane when she attacked John? Millions stayed glued to their TVs as her testimony reached the fateful night she lost all control. As momentum seemed to swing against her, a surprise witness took the stand. The Cycle of Abuse. Millions of TV viewers sat glued to their sets to see what fate Lorena would meet. Would she be found guilty and deported?
Found not guilty and have the opportunity to rebuild? John and Lorena would set out on wildly different paths-- John chased fame in a self-destructive downward spiral, while Lorena had to come to grips with the scars of her ordeal, no matter the verdict.
