Before the judge handed down Weaver’s sentence, she heard from the victim of the attack, who gave an emotional impact statement, saying she will face physical and emotional pain for the rest of her life .

WARNING: Some of the details below, including in the victim impact statement, are very graphic in nature.

What happened the night of the attack

Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were called at 1:23 a.m. on September 17, 2019at the Lake Village Apartments in Rochester Hills.

A resident told police he heard two women fighting in the apartment upstairs and one called for help.

Nobody answered when the deputies knocked on the door, but they heard someone moaning and calling for help. They said they entered through an unlocked door and found Weaver and the victim upstairs in the master bedroom.

Both women were naked. Weaver was hovering over the injured victim on the floor next to the bed, authorities said.

“They saw the two women covered in blood,” the Oakland County Sgt. Jason Dalbec said during a hearing in October 2019. “One of them was lying on the ground. Another was kneeling next to her, and they’re both in that dazed, confused state.

“One was lying on her back on the floor, the other was sitting on her knees between the bed and the victim lying on the floor,” said Deputy Shawn Hopkins, who testified in the case.

The victim had multiple bite marks on his face and part of his left ear had been bitten off.

Deputies said Weaver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Alcohol, containers of marijuana and unknown prescription drugs were found in the kitchen, they said.

Weaver was taken into custody.

More details emerge during the hearing

The victim and others spoke in more detail about that night during a hearing on October 29, 2019. (You can read this full story here.)

“(Weaver) seemed to be in a happy mood,” Hopkins said. “She was having a good time. (The victim) was very quiet – almost looked like he was in shock.”

The victim told officers that she invited Weaver to her house for drinks because they had previously been neighbors. Weaver made sexual advances to the woman, who refused and went to bed, police say.

“She put in the booze she brought – she put it down,” the victim said. “She came over to give me a hug because we hadn’t seen each other in a long time, and that’s when she started kissing me. She kissed me with an open mouth kiss and my reaction was to laugh, erase her and stop her.

The woman went to bed, but woke up to find a naked Weaver strangling and biting her, she said.

“(I remember) jumping out of my bed and seeing Allison on all fours on my bed and me standing there and she was on all fours giving me a really scary look,” the victim said. “I was, like, ‘Allison, Allison, what are you doing?’ She kept giving me this look with her head bobbing back and forth. I was, like, ‘What are you doing?’ She just threw herself on me and she just started choking me.

The victim said Weaver made animal-like movements with his head and teeth. She said Weaver was completely naked.

“Mrs. Weaver told me they were having consensual sex and that (the victim) was a vampire and Mrs. Weaver was the wolf,” Hopkins said.

victim impact statement

Here is the victim’s full impact statement on the impact of Wednesday’s sentencing:

“On September 16, 2019, my life changed forever. I left Allison Thompson Weaver in my house, and in return she tried to kill me. If the police hadn’t shown up when they did, neighbors calling 9-1-1, I wouldn’t be here today.

“I have a few memories of the attack that night, like bits of a horror movie. First, waking up in my own bed to find her in a crawling position like an animal, naked , ready to pounce on me. She strangled me, the look on her face, until I was unconscious. The extreme pain I felt when I regained consciousness and couldn’t move afterwards being raped, beaten and literally devoured from head to toe.

“I knew in my head what was happening to me and there was nothing I could do about it. Then she whispered the words, ‘You must die.’ I begged her, ‘I’ll do whatever you want.’ But she laughed and said, “It’s too late,” and started choking me again, a second time. This time, I saw my loved ones pass before my eyes. I saw a bright light and I saw the end of my life. That’s all I remember until the hospital.

“I remember seeing the pure evil in her eyes, though, and I truly believe nothing can save her. Every hour of every day I face excruciating pain from what she did to me and the countless bites, including my breasts and vagina. I have permanent nerve damage all over my face and body.

“She bit my ear and literally consumed parts of me, like my cheek, for example. The pain in my neck, shoulder and back, even with physical therapy, is only getting worse. J ‘ve tried to avoid more surgeries, if possible, than I’ve already had.

“Talking about this doesn’t fully convey my emotions. The hundreds of photos of what she did to me are absolutely horrifying and disgusting to look at. I’m unrecognizable in these photos, and they’re just beginning to show what this rapist cannibal made me suffer, while smiling.

“I’m learning to live with the pain and the countless scars and the countless stares I get, but what scares me are the incessant visions of her demon eyes that kill me and the fact that she will try to start again one day.

“Nobody knows why she chose me to be her victim that night. The doctors at the hospital said it was nothing short of a miracle that I survived that attack that night- the.

“In closing, I don’t think it’s fair that she took so much from me that I can never get back. She stole a part of me and she broke a part of me. She took a part of me. took away my sense of security and confidence and so much more. Everything this thing has done to me deserves more than 10-15 years behind bars. I will live with these issues, pains, damages and fears for the rest of my life.

Weaver’s response

Oakland County Judge Nanci Grant offered Weaver a chance to address the court after the victim impact statement.

“I would like to apologize to the victim and his family, as well as to my family,” Weaver said. “I feel really, really awful about what happened. I wish I could win.

Decision on sentencing

Grant called what happened to the victim “an abomination” and praised his strength.

“The victim started with his statement, ‘It was like I was in a horror movie,’ and I wrote that because when I reviewed (the pre-sentence inquest), I had to read it several times because I couldn’t believe what I was reading,” Grant said. “Then when I told (the lawyer) about it, the first thing that came out of his mouth was, ‘ It was like reading the script for a horror movie.’

“I can’t even imagine what you were going through. …I’ve been here 25 years and I’ve seen murder cases that weren’t as violent as this one. I can’t imagine, psychologically, where you (Weaver) were doing this to him, and the apologies that were made for it, and then this is the first time I’ve seen the medical records in terms of all the injuries on her body and her face and her genitals. “Horrible” isn’t even the word for it.

Grant said she understands why the victim wanted Weaver to serve more time than was recommended in the sentencing agreement. But the agreed duration was already longer than what the charges would have justified, according to the judge.

“I think it’s the right solution to this particular problem,” Grant said. “I don’t think these accusations would ever have meant to reflect what really happened here. These charges are not what was seen here. So in some ways it’s a giveaway (to Weaver) what those fees are. They could have been worse. I’m glad it wasn’t worse for you (the victim) physically, ma’am.

She followed the guidelines of the agreement and sentenced Weaver to 10-15 years in the Michigan Department of Corrections. She must also register as a sex offender.
