The victim of sexually abusive twerking has decided it wasn’t that bad after all.
Washington Tharpe told the Daily News on Thursday that he’s forgiven the two women who twerked on him at a gas station convenience store in Washington, D.C. The middle school Spanish teacher said his connection to the church helped change his mind regarding filing charges against the twerkers.
Washington was harassed on Oct. 7 when two women approached him in a store and began to dance against him in an effort to grab his phone and wallet. One of the twerkers in question, Ayanna Marie Knight, was arrested on Nov. 10 and charged with sexual abuse in the third degree. This isn’t her first brush with the law; she’d previously been charged with prostitution twice in D.C. and once in Las Vegas. The other dancer hasn’t been caught yet, but Washington just wants the charges dropped.
“I’m willing to let go of all my pain that I had inside, of the humiliation, and direct it towards the improvement of her life,” he said.
After finding out that Knight could face 10 years in jail and could be registered as a sex offender, he began to feel sorry for her.
“If she was like 30-years-old or 40, I would have asked to throw the book at her,” Tharpe said. “But at 22, she’s not grown. I can’t see myself sending her to prison for that.”
He came to this conclusion after consulting with pastors while seeking spiritual counseling following the incident.
In return for not testifying against them, the Daily News reports, Tharpe asks that the two women apologize, and become role models for young women.
