Girlfriend-Torturer's Stirring Apologia: "That Bitch Drove Me Crazy"
During the victim-impact statement part of the sentencing, Page made comments like "Give her a round of fuckin' applause" and "Let the whole fuckin' family speak," and clapped derisively. He assessed the actions of the court in general, "Y'all deserve some Emmys and Oscars." Told he was getting 25 years for his crimes, Page cried, "That's all you're going to give me?"
Later, as officers of the court prepared to take him to his cell, Page explained his actions of last summer, though he had earlier denied them. "You think I'm just going to do something like that to nobody for no reason?" he reasoned. "That bitch drove me crazy. Every day lying to me, lying to me. Drove me crazy. Give me my fucking time and let me get out of here."
Advised of his right to appeal, Page rejoined, "You have a right to leave me the fuck alone."
Page also told the judge his sentence was "a cakewalk." It is yet to be seen how much cake Page will receive in prison.
