      Hey, great comment, Sarah. I can see your college education from here…

      What would YOU suggest as a punishment, Sarah? Give her a new car and home because her life is hard? LOL

    I would say that she should definitely get some time because what she did was illegal; I also think though since she clearly has a drug addiction, after being incarcerated she should go to treatment and try to get her life straight.

      I just gotta say you are wrong are wrong on all accounts. She is not addicted to drugs, i know her personally, she is a wonderful mom. sending her to jail would only deprieve a child from his mother. i do believe there should be consequences but long term jail time is not the answer

    I once dated a black guy who was a Nurse at North Memorial..I loved the elastic waist on the scrubs he wore to work..Easy access for a quickie as he was headed out the door.
