Our prison system does not work! This woman has on her own become a model citizen. Why not leave her alone!

Let her go. She has lived trouble free for 32 years and has been a contributing citizen.

We all have things that we did in our past and especially as teenagers. I hope and pray that they will show mercy on Susan/Marie Walsh. Obviously she straightened herself out if she was involved with heroin because she has a family to show for it. Have mercy.

I believe that Susan LeFevre has been punished enough. I don't condone what she did but come on she was only 19 yrs. old. Teenagers don't think about the life long consequences. My husband committed a crime when he was 19 and now being 41 and having children it haunts him everyday. I understand they have to be held responsible but had someone guided this young lady other than her parents and told her by her pleading guilty that this would be something that would haunt her forever she probably would not of plead guilty. These kids don't know. They depend on adults to guide them and help them, not tell them to just pleed guilty to keep them from being embarrased.

Truly a big waste of taxpayer money to let her serve her sentence in jail.Give her community service for 10 to 20 years.A lot more rewarding for both society and her.

I'm in agreement give her community service but not prison/jail. The court system really amazes me. First offenders get a beating by the court while others get a slap on the wrist. I have no faith in the court system whatsoever!

Good lord let the woman go. She has proven to be a good citizen. Don't put her back to prison because a mistake made by young girl decades ago.

Gee California, what's it like to be perfect? Wow, must be awesome.
Let this woman GO. There is absolutly NOTHING to be gained by incarcerating her at this point. She didn't take a persons life, good God, she didn't even take anything by stealing something from someone.
Let her go, for the sake of her husband, children and extended families than for no other reason and spend the time and resourses for criminals out there right now butchering people and staging bank robberies AS I TYPE THIS...

First of all Ext-ing Circumstances, CA is not the people pressing charges. She is being extradited back to Michigan. They are the ones who want her back! Secondly, as a Californian, I say let her stay here in CA and live out the rest of her life with her husband and children. When I think about what Michigan will do to this woman it sickens me. All they intend to do is treat her like she is nothing and they will make an example out of her. Truthfully, she is a success story because of the example she has set. Most people who are in prison on similiar charges would only get into trouble over and over again! She has been clean for decades and has been a model citizen. She has suffered enough!

Hmmmmm, letsee;
Comitted a crime and was found guilty (10- to 20-year sentence on conspiracy and drug convictions) and then commited another crime (walked out of the Detroit House of Corrections).
I'd say she has a hard time learning a lesson.

This again is another example of the crazy justice system. She should be let go. She didn't harm anyone. The mistake that she made when she was 19 could easily be blamed on other factors.

We have witnessed the public court clowns/devils that get not guilty verdicts for their wealthy clients when they commit murder. Of course they can get the acquittal because of the blind justice system, i.e. money.

Now we have a lady that has been a wife, mother and contributed to society and we should lock her up for at least 9 years at tax payer expense. And the reason we will do this is to rehabilitate her. Go figure. Justice will be served again.

I have started a petition TO FREE SUSAN LE FEVRE at Care2. com please go to Care2.com and sign the petition to free this woman. That punishment was unjust and excessive and she is obviously no criminal. I am not even a friend or relative- just someone who cares. And also many others in the US agree with me- i'd say about 75 % of AOl users agree with me.
go to CARE2.COM and sign her petition please!

Fairness? I think not. Don't make such idiotic statements when has led a good, clean life for the past 32 years. I hope you put more thought into the things you say in the future. Also she pleaded guilty hoping for probation. Here's an article that explains the situation a little further.

This news even made it into the British press. Hope your female governor does the right thing and returns this woman to her family TODAY.

Think for yourself, of course she was a model citizen, she was afraid she would be FOUND OUT!
She commited a crime and then turned around and commited another. Seems to me she's not too bright. And she HAS LIVED A LIE FOR 24 YEARS, now bringing her family into this fiasco. You can call me ignorant, but I really think you need to look into the mirror.
” LeFevre, who trained as a hospice worker and volunteered for political causes in California, said she tried to live a model life to atone for her past mistakes”
BS, if she wanted to atone for her mistakes, go to the police, turn yourself in and take it to the judge. She’s only feeding you this line of BS because she was caught.
Did she make a mistake as a teenager? Yes. Did the court go overboard in sentencing? Probably. That is no excuse for what she did. That is what our court with it’s appeals system is for. If her case was bad enough more than likely a lawyer would have taken it pro bono. Stop making excuses and calling someone else ignorant because they don’t agree with with your inane drivel of an opinion.

All generalities are false including this one.(GK Chesterton) Outgoing Bush should pardon.
