Woman On The Run 32 years, Caught.

Wow, what a story. This dumb girl, 19 years old, is selling smack in Michigan in 1974. She gets busted selling 600 bucks of horse to a narc in Saginaw. Her parents convinced her to plead guilty to save them embarrassment(!). What a couple of winners those two must have been. The gavel comes down and it's 10 to 20 years in the slammer upstate, hard time. This is the first time she was in trouble, she thought she would get probation. What a shocker that must have been. She does a year and then I suppose out of compassion, her grandfather, who must have been much less of an asshole than dad was, helps her escape. Not that she tunneled out with a spoon. She hopped a fence and grampa drove her away.

Now, some "friend" of hers who she must have told about it squeals anonymously and 32 years later the fuzz turn up in her driveway. Except now she is 53 and a mother of 3 kids. A fine upstanding citizen. Who knew there was even any time in the statute of limitations on a minor drug bust like this?

Sounds like they want to lock her up out of spite to me. Listen to the cops in Michigan.

"I've heard her story that she just happened to be with a person who was selling heroin," said Russ Marlan, spokesman for the state Department of Corrections. "The file we have is very different."

"She had people working for her. She was making a large profit," Marlan said. "She wore nice clothing and rented an apartment. When she was arrested, she had $600 in cash, paraphernalia for cutting heroin, and photographs that proved she was acquainted with people higher up in the Saginaw drug world.
Saginaw drug world? Give me a break and she had nice clothing? Oh yeah that's a drug king pin for you, clothes and an apartment. Practically Scarface there, and 600 simolians in cold hard cash... Man, thats the high life.

This case is ridiculous. She shouldn't have served time in the first place. A 19 year old on the first offense. All the stories I am reading are that she took cash from a narc. Did she deliver? Or, when she wouldn't go down on the cop, he busted her?

32 years later and this case is still bullshit. Give her time served and everyone moves on with their life. This Russ Marlan, spokesman for the state Department of Corrections sounds like a real wanker.
Her file said she was on work release because she was not a management problem, and that day she was heading to a work assignment at a clinic -- I believe it was somewhere on the prison grounds. She had a pass at 6:30 a.m. and by 7:30 a.m. the people at the clinic called to say she had not reported for work.
So the Scareface of Saginaw gets work release? What waste of taxpayers money. Don't they have bigger problems in Michigan?
