Dr Phil: Shawna Confronts Her Attacker 21 Years Later
Dr Phil told Shawna that she should talk to Jerrie Jones, the woman that shot her when they were teens. They had never come face to face and Jerrie wanted to apologize and set the record straight. Shawna has had nightmares about this woman her entire life, coming to kill her in cold blood.
Jerrie and Shawna had a chance to tell their sides. Jerrie Jones said she was a victim just as much as Shawna. Shawna thinks what happened is unfair.
Consequences Of Jerrie Jones Shooting Shawna
Shawna told Jerrie Jones that she is constantly stared at. She can’t take care of her children. Shawna’s children are told that their mother is ugly. She said her whole life is doctor’s appointments and she still is not done.
Although Jerrie doesn’t remember putting the gun to Shawna’s face, the doctors have told her otherwise. Since the gun was loaded with buckshot, if the gun had been farther back from her face it would have taken her head off.
