To those who disagreed with my comment, I know for a Fact that some get out for a few days to get their disability checks...then are put back in to finish their time...I'm wondering how they choose those who get this privilege??...

She is a waste of good air. She got her kid taken away because she was on drugs. The little boy she has, had more drugs in his system the what she did.I know a lot about this dead beat, i'm friends with some of her good family.

I'm a "do-gooder", but I believe the sentencing is a fair one. Maybe it would be better for both this woman and her children if they were raised in a better environment.

She is entitled to the best defense possible as are all of us. There's nothing wrong with the attorney asking for lenience, but the judge doesn't have to grant it. That's the way the process works.

"The state doesn't generally oppose intermittent sentences for work-related purposes, but not for things like this," said Rings.

Yes they do, I guess they pick and choose who they grant this request to...same with the pot grower who lost his license, some get work driving privileges some don't...I'd like to know how they choose??

Jail or not, this family will continue to ride the back of the poor old taxpayer.

Another stupid criminal. I am sure the "do-gooders" are going to cry about this one. She broke the law, because she is stupid, so she goes to jail.
