Denise Dallaire: Freed After 10 Years in Prison

Denise Dallaire served ten years in prison before being abruptly freed a few months ago by the same judge who sentenced her.

She was convicted in 2003 on a minor drug dealing charge, but because of mandatory sentencing laws in effect at that time, she received a 15 year sentence.  When her sentence was reversed, the judge apologized to her.
