Five months after Susan LeFevre’s rearrest, a judge showed mercy, giving her two years’ probation for the escape charge. That still left the issue of the original sentence. Should LeFevre remain in prison for the drug offense? The judge punted the decision to the ten-member Michigan parole board.
On January 28, the board voted unanimously to set her free, though she has to stay behind bars on good behavior until May 19. “She effectively did what we want our offenders to do—live a crime-free life once they leave us,” says John Cordell of the Michigan Department of Corrections. “Of course, she did commit a crime in order to live that crime-free life.”
You be the judge!
