It is reported that Governor Granholm has commuted the sentence Carol Hart, who escaped from prison almost 40 years ago. Hart accompanied an individual who shot and killed a clerk during a robbery. She claimed that she knew nothing of the crime beforehand and that she did not "participate." But the best that a plea deal could bring her was a 25- to 35-year sentence! Hall wasn't impressed and escaped in less than a year. She was eventually caught when the police got a hot tip and picked her up at work. See story here.
