Jennifer asked that I convey her appreciation of the many prayers and statements of support she has received from countless individuals," Sartain said in the statement. "She is deeply regretful about the pain she caused her family, her fiance, her friends and the community who rallied to her aid.
"I believe Jennifer committed no crime. I understand and respect [Gwinnett County] District Attorney Danny Porter and his obligation to investigate this situation thoroughly. Jennifer hopes this experience will help her grow and heal and perhaps help others in similar circumstances. I look forward to working with her and her family."
She acknowledged buying a bus ticket a week before her journey and arranging for a taxi to an Atlanta bus station before she left on her jog.
Oh, thank GOD she did this so other women can be aware of the dangers of being rich and planning large weddings.
I am SO GLAD she got help before this got totally out of control.
Like, what would have happened if she had, say, planned an elaborate escape from her white lace beaded bridal handcuffs...worrying her friends and family to death, causing law enforcement resources to be diverted from people who actually needed them, casting suspicion on her fiance, and finally implicating a "Hispanic man" in her "kidnapping"? Think of how awful that would have been!
