ORLANDO, Fla. - For the first time, we are hearing from the former Florida inmate allegedly beaten by prison guards.
Cheryl Weimar was left a quadriplegic after the incident. Now, she’s speaking out.
"This is Cheryl Weimar. I got out of prison two years ago. They nearly took my life while I was there," Weimar said in a video sent exclusively to FOX 35 News. "God please do something, I beg you, God!"
Weimar’s attorneys argue corrections officers broke her neck during a beating two years ago.
She was serving time at Lowell Correctional Institution in Ocala.
While she received millions from the Florida Department of Corrections in a civil settlement, no one has been arrested in her case. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says it’s still investigating.
A protest is planned for Saturday outside the prison.
