She says, “There are times I wish I could give the gun back to Colter and tell him to try again and put me out of my misery.” She adds,”Welcome to hell. I have been here for a year now,” she told Peterson. “You wanted to kill. I was an easy target and took the bullet. You should never be allowed out of prison.”
Later on the defense table, she said, “I hate you, I hate what you did to me. I hate that I trusted you. … Your life will be confined to a small room, and my life will also be confined.”

Peterson robbed Turner for her backpack, cellphone, ipod and some cash.
Peterson’s parents were also present in the trial. They said, “He is a good boy and any parent would be happy to have him as a son. Colter is not an evil person and does have many good qualities about him. He is a good boy and any parent would be happy to have him as a son.” She then apologized to the victim.
Peterson too apologized to the victim and said, “I’m sincerely sorry, which probably doesn’t mean much. I want to apologize to my family… and the community. I want to pay for what I have done… maybe one day I can be forgiven.”
