Laura Sabien Andrews is a survivor of a drug-facilitated sexual assault.  She remained heavily involved with the entire process of her offender's prosecution.  Determined not to be his victim, she followed through with every aspect the judicial system has to offer.  From reporting the March of 2001 crime, to taking the stand as the state's witness, writing letters and speaking out to the Board of Pardons and the presiding Judge, Laura stayed focused that justice would prevail. Once her perpetrator was in prison, she sought damages in a civil court and was awarded almost half of a million dollars, though she has yet to find a way to collect it.  

February 3, 2003 I awoke after being asleep for approximately two days and decided to make my last sell and perhaps my last drug.  This had been intentioned for some time as every true friend and family member had alienated themselves from me, not for any bad deed but for what I was doing and what I represented.  I was an elite drug dealer if there is such a thing.  I travelled no street, saw no back alleys, didn't even drive my own car.  I had a driver for that.  Call it what you will but I was the trusted source for the party favors of the richest party folk in San Diego County.  From Los Angeles (the source) to La Jolla and the glorified gay neighborhoods of Hillcrest, San Diego Brandon aka Brandino, and his particular flavor came at a high price and a high cost.  I led a Studio 54 life....No doubt.
