WMUR: Mazzaglia found guilty

The following is a joint statement from Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) and the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence:

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Lizzie Marriott during this difficult time. We hope this verdict provides you peace. This trial showed us how extremely inhumane and selfish one person can be and we are grateful to the jurors for holding Lizzie’s killer accountable for his actions.

The coverage has been difficult for many of us to process, in particular survivors of sexual assault. We’d like to remind the community that confidential help is available 24 hours a day.

On the seacoast you can reach out to Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) at 1-888-747-7070 and our Portsmouth office, 7 Junkins Avenue, is open Monday through Friday from 9-5 with advocates available for walk-in help.
