Recent developments in a brutal attack that happened almost 15 years ago still has the victim very upset and looking for answers.

In June 200, Linda LeBrane was forced off Interstate 84 by four attackers, beaten stabbed and left to die in a Canyon County field.

This fall, a judge ruled that one of the attackers, John David Wurdemann, be released and given a new trial. Sarah Pearce, the Homedale woman who was released last year, was arrested earlier this month on drug charges, accused of violating her probation. And a third, Kenneth Wurdemann, is scheduled to be released from prison this Saturday.

I asked LeBrane today how she feels about all of this.

"It makes me feel like the criminals have all the rights and the victims have no rights and advocacy," said LeBrane. "I am still struggling with about $42,000 worth of medical bills and it seems unfair and unjust."

The fourth attacker, Jeremy Flores Sanchez, is serving a life sentence for his role in the attack.

LeBrane added she has seen next to nothing in restitution from the four.
