I have no idea what her story is and don't know why she was incarcerated in the first place.I see she lists in her credits,Professor?She created a good television program and she is assumed to be an advocate for prison reform.You don't often get an advocate that's actually been there and done that,in this business.This might be a good opportunity to speak with an advocate with inside knowledge?I see this already happened,so what did you think?I missed it and never even saw the posting until June 22.
