A Texas woman who was freed from a life sentence last year after President Obama granted her clemency is behind bars again.
In addition to the theft charges, Richardson violated five separate terms of her release including failing to report that she had been arrested, that she'd been terminated from a job for not showing up and that she had changed her address.
She cried, too
Appearing before U.S. District Judge Keith Ellison on Thursday, Richardson was told that she had wasted a rare opportunity at freedom. Ellison ordered her back to federal prison for 14 months, with five years of supervised release beyond that.
The avalanche has already started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote.
