“I was in a state of shock,” Miller told CBS ‘ “60 Minutes.”

“There are some young men, particularly young men of color, which have longer sentences for non-violent crimes, and for having a teenie-weenie bit of weed in their pockets,” she said. “He’s just been convicted of three felonies. And he’s going to need a month for each and every offense. How do you explain that to me?”

Miller also recalled learning of the news articles about the details of her rape, that she was going out to a fraternity party.

“It was surreal, the news broken to me by the internet,” Miller said. “I was just sitting at my desk, surrounded by co-workers, have been reading up on how I was stripped and then penetrated and broken in a bed of pine needles, behind a dumpster.”

It is also to push back against the public opinion, including those comments made online, that she was to blame for her own assault because she had been drinking.

“Rape is not a punishment for getting drunk,” Miller said. “And it’s a really sick mentality in our culture, if you deserve it and rape you if you drink too much.”

“You deserve a hangover, a bad boy, but you don’t deserve to have their body parts on the inside of you,” she added.

Miller will also meet up with Peter Johansson, and Carl-Arndt, of the two Swedish students who intervened in the attack and chased down the victory, on the night of Sunday to Monday in the program.

“The night of the assault, what happened was a miracle, what happened was that I was saved,” says Miller. “And to think that of the two Swedes, who know that it is the right thing to do, and that would be really good, that always gave me hope.”
