A woman who escaped a Detroit prison camp 32 years ago and fled to Southern California, where she married and raised three children, was back in custody Wednesday following her arrest last week at her Carmel Valley home.
Marie Walsh, 53, was known as Susan Lefevre in 1975 when she was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison for conspiracy and violation of drug laws, according to the U.S. Marshals Service…
Walsh, who has lived in Carmel Valley for 10 years, said her family knew nothing of her former identity and fugitive status prior to her arrest.
Walsh characterized her reformed, family-oriented ways as grounds for mercy and lenience when she faces justice again in the Midwest.
Arrested under idiotic laws three decades ago, the continuing idiocy is now going to rip apart a family and punish a woman who has long since put her life on the right track.
Hooray for the drug war!
