(Newser) – The Wisconsin women charged with false imprisonment after tying a man up and super-gluing his penis to his stomach aren’t especially repentant. “If anybody is a victim in this it’s all the women that he’s dated,” Michelle Belliveau told the Today show. “They gave their heart to him, and he broke their hearts.” Belliveau says she wasn’t romantically involved with the man, and played little role in the assault.

Wendy Sewell similarly professes near-innocence. “I stood there for a whole five minutes and only said a couple sentences to him,” she says, “asking him I thought he loved me, thought we were going to grow old together. I’m pretty ashamed, embarrassed. I feel I have been the one who was actually the victim.” The aggrieved man is currently in jail himself, thanks to his estranged wife's allegations of child abuse and domestic violence.
