Prison Escapee Charged

It's sad but I am not surprised that the DA decided to file charges on this case.

Susan M. LeFevre says she gained her freedom from prison 32 years ago by tossing her coat over a barbed wire fence, climbing over and hopping into a waiting car.

Gaining her freedom this time around just became more complicated.

The Thomas Township native's life on the lam ended in April, when authorities acting on a tip of LeFevre's assumed name arrested the mother of three in Del Mar, Calif., near San Diego.

On Monday, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy charged the 53-year-old with prison escape.

''We cannot have people walking away from prison,'' Worthy said.

''While it is admirable that Ms. LeFevre has made something of her life, she must accept responsibility for her earlier behavior. Inmates must know there is a consequence for escaping prison.''

If convicted, LeFevre could face probation or up to five more years in prison to serve after her present sentence. She's in the Scott Correctional Facility in Plymouth serving at least 51/2 years for selling heroin in 1974.

The system will never let you go whether you're an escapee or not.

Gotta wonder why the courts are so sincerely disinterested in any kind of true rehabilitation (?)

(The) "War on Drug (addicts)" continues...

1974 ... puhleeze

It's no secret that Islamic terrorism is financed (in no small part) via opiate exporting...

the same figures involved in that activity also support extremely harsh penalties (like chopping off the hands of) small time heroin users/ sellers

US of A(fghanistan)...
