SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - In May, Thomas Chapman was hurting
"They stapled my lips shut and stapled my ears to my head,” Chapman told ABC 4 News in May.
But four months later, Chapman is looking much better.
"I say it turns out good everything is proceeding forward,” says Chapman.
Chapman was in court to testify against one of the six defendants in the torture assault.
Chapman says he can't shake what happened to him in May.
While staying at a so-called friend’s house, Chapman was allegedly tortured by his six roommates.
According to Chapmen the six thought he snitched them out to a friend, so they allegedly stapled him shut.
"The next thing I know I'm getting drilled, beaten with keyboard and whatever else they can find in the room," Chapman said back in May.
An attorney for one of the accused says Brandon Haggard wasn't responsible for the torture.
"I think he was just at the wrong place at the wrong time,” says his attorney Clayton Simms. “He just happened to be living there and has a bad association but wasn't involved with any of the assaulted behavior."
In court Tuesday, Chapman testified about that day in May as prosecutors hope to make the charges stick against Haggard.
And if Chapman ever has to testify before a jury he says he will tell him he is still haunted.
"I'm cuckoo,” he says. “I'm mentally disturbed, physically and mentally disturbed.”
Haggard was bound over for trial. The five remaining defendants waived their preliminary hearing.
