Countdown to 397
Posted on November 19, 2013
Over the years there have been people locked up for years over a joint, or even worse, for not doing anything wrong at all. Yet here is a woman who has been arrested a mind blowing 396 times!
“After serving nearly a year in prison for assaulting Ald. James Cappleman (46th) last year, Shermain Miles is once again a free woman.
Miles — who has 396 arrests on her record since 1978 for offenses including theft, drugs, public drinking, prostitution, attempted robbery and armed robbery — was released from Logan Correctional Center in Downstate Lincoln on Monday, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.”
Good lord. One would think at least a few of the offenses would keep her off the streets for a good number of years. Guess not.
Over/under on #397 is 30 days.
