On The Bright Side, Free Food and Board

Woman left in jail for 19 years because couldn't pay $92 bailYou think you’ve had it tough? Spare a thought for an Indian woman who spent 19 years in jail because she couldn’t afford the $92 bail. OK, sure she was in jail for murder but she had no idea that the judge had granted her bail. Her son, who she gave birth to in jail, spent years working in a garment factory to save up for the money. This week she was finally released.

  1. I read this somewhere else but I don’t think they mentioned the bail aspect of it, only that they’d been reunited. So if he hadn’t been able to bail her out she’d still be languishing in jail. Now yonder their jails are always splitting at the seams. It would have cost more than $92.00 to feed her… well maybe not rice is cheap.
