I Shot Daddy

She Killed Her Father to Protect Her Sister

by Stacey Lannert

Category: Biographies / General

Number of pages: 336

Description:
On July 4, 1990, eighteen-year-old Stacey Lannert shot and killed her father, who had been sexually and emotionally abusing her since she was eight. She suffered terrifying abuse at the hands of her unstable, alcoholic father for ten years until the night she realised he was turning his attention towards her younger sister, who was on the verge of becoming his next victim. Stacey's trial went horribly wrong and she was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of early release. But - after spending as many years behind bars as she had outside of them - her sentence was finally reviewed and she was freed. I Shot Daddy is Stacey's heartrending memoir of her harrowing childhood and the pain and protective love of her sister that led her to that horrifying night. An incredibly moving and gripping story which tells of an extraordinary recovery of a woman determined to fight for her freedom.

What the papers say:
"This real-life tale, as dramatic as any movie, of Stacey Lannert and her struggle to survive violent sexual assault and the devastating aftermath raises intense issues of crime, culpability and the nature of violence and families. It's a devastating and important subject, beautifully told." -- Naomi Wolf
