"We are human beings' is her message to men
Lorena Bobbitt is a free woman. Bobbitt, who sliced off her husband's penis last year, was released Monday after spending five weeks in a Virginia mental hospital. She had been found innocent by reason of insanity Jan. 21.
Bobbitt will now receive treatment from a private therapist. She said Monday that she hoped her ordeal may help men understand how to treat women. "Please, we are human beings," she said. "Learn from this."
Bobbitt plans to return to her $24,000-a-year job as a manicurist, said Janna Bisutti, her friend and employer.
