During the hearing, Watts announced her intent to testify and apologize to Trooper Schuck at the sentencing hearing, adding she wants to speak directly and personally to the Trooper from the stand in a public place. Her apology holds an important meaning to her.

Kristen Watts Working to Turn Her Life Around
Despite her legal troubles, Watts has been working hard to turn her life around. “She’s been in school; she has been working hard. She wants to take her experience and help other people and she has put herself in a position to do that,” says Denson. Her legal team is planning to ask the court to impose just the eight months in jail that she has already served and then put her on probation so that she can be monitored, make sure she is staying out of trouble, and then help other people.
Kristen Watt’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for November 6. It’s refreshing to see her take responsibility for her actions and make amends. Hopefully, she will be able to continue her work to change her life around positively and help others.
