  1. “She had no idea how far Reese and Berry would go in trying to rob Brooks, defense attorney Sean Gamble said.” What does she think criminals do with firearms? In for a dime, in for a dollar.

  2. So? She didn’t have any serious charges until she did:.that’s the dumbest criminal argument I’ve ever heard..Charles Manson didn’t have any violent criminal activities until he did..she lured a man to a robbery (a felony) aid victim was killed because of her felony. Hence his death occurred do you a felony that she started. She should be in jail for the rest of her life!!

  3. Sentenced to six, but she will be out in three. What SHOULD be demanded during her time on parole, is that if she so much has ANY contact with a convicted felon, then she goes back to the slammer. A condition of her parole is that she now will associate with a better class of individuals, than the ones that caused her to have “serious charges”.
