Convicted Batterer in Tea Cup Scuffle Still Arguing her Innocence

WESH news has an interview with the convicted batterer in the Tea Cup scuffle that left her victim with permanent injuries. Victoria Walker was convicted and yet in this interview she still claims her innocence.

“And that was it. All this [alleged] beating her brutally didn’t happen. It did not happen,” Walker said. “In my heart and in my mind, I thought I was defending myself. I did the right thing, you know?”

“This ordeal has been really detrimental to my, my life,” Walker said. “I’ve been out of work for more than a month, and I’m going to try to go back and put my life back together.”

You lost your job? How about the woman you beat who has permanent brain damage and likely can never return to work at the same job again. All this over a place in line for an amusement attraction. I wonder if her judge will read this and violate her back to prison. (Read)

    I really think you missed the mark with this post. The woman was convicted of battery, and she was way out of control to get physical with someone over a ride.

    That said, the “injured party” lost all of my sympathy when she went on to sue Disney, knowing that historically the company has settled these matters out of court for a lot of money. Then her husband also sued Disney for “loss of companionship.” Please spare me, this couple is litigious and looking for a payout. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to learn that the “injured party” incited the fight.

    Additionally, it is SO EASY to claim brain damage because it’s near impossible to prove.

      As one who suffered permanent back injuries at the result of careless actions of another, I tend to sympathize with the victim in cases like this.

      What upset me most, but I left out of the post, is that Walker, the convicted batterer, had apologized in court and received a lighter sentence because of it. Then to turn around and proclaim her innocence in an post-sentencing interview really shows how manipulative she is. I hope the judge hauls her back into court to make her explain herself.

    • Jensonb says:

      Erm, I would have to imagine it was a doctor who diagnosed the victim with brain damage…Not just her deciding to say it of her own accord.

      And furthermore, being litigious is completely different from spoiling for a fight.

    I have to completely agree with Juli.

    The alleged “victim” in the case reportedly had a history of aggression (though that wasn’t allowed to be used as testimony). From not being there its easy to boil this down to calling someone a “batterer” and someone else the “victim,” I doubt it is all the simple. However, the legal system in this country tends to boil it down to that. The prosecution/”victim” is doing everything they can to “manipulate” the jury into believing that the “batterer” is responsible. It’s the defendent’s right to do what they can to get a lighter (and what I think was a fair) sentence.

    I am thrilled Ms. Walker is out of jail. I don’t think she belonged there. Clearly she and Ms. Krause need some lessons in public decorum, but jail was too much. I don’t have a problem with Walker believing that she defended herself. I think she was provoked. I think Krause was rude and thought little of Walker’s feelings. “If she had just said excuse me, I am sorry, forgive me, but I didn’t see you,” this could have probably all been avoided. I am sorry she was hurt, but I do believe her ugly behavior was somewhat responsible. So, be careful how you treat people.
