The price of over-punishment: The story of a 40 year old woman

Our punishments are often so harsh that people end up bitter, lost, without resources, and with NOTHING TO LOSE. How easy it would be to return to a life of crime...and maybe they weren't career criminals to start with!

Read this true story about a girl who had 22 grams of cocaine - just as thousands of executives and Hollywood stars have done - and then served 18 years in prison for it. Now she is 40 years old and no one wants to hire an "ex-felon" - yet how many of the business owners who won't hire this women have done worse?
