Helen Liggett is an Assistant Federal Public Defender and she's the only person, aside from prison guards, who has spent time with Parson since March.

Liggett says she's seen a complete change in Parson from the person she first met eight months ago, to the person Parson is today.

"There's been a marked change in her mental condition. When first met her she was completely unresponsive. She just sat with her mouth hanging open while I spoke with her. No flicker of understanding did I ever see. And at this point she's an articulate, kind, compassionate young woman," Liggett said.

Liggett adds that her job as Parson's lawyer isn't over. In the next few days she'll be requesting that Parson spend her 20 years sentence in the same federal prison where Parson has already started mental counseling.

Friday was the first time Liggett was able to speak on behalf of her client since a gag order was issued back in March.
