The six people seated at a table in the visitors room at the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility shared a common experience they each were impacted by a violent crime.
Their audience also shared a common thread they each had been convicted of a crime.
The victims sat face-to-face with dozens of inmates Wednesday night for a third-annual victim impact panel at the facility. They each described how their lives were changed because of the actions of another.
Lois Mosbach, whos granddaughter, Michelle Gibson, was murdered in 1998, wiped tears from her eyes as she described what investigators found at the grisly scene where her granddaughter was killed.
I know not everyone is in here for murder, but your actions have affected someone, she said.
