    Isn’t this the woman who sat in her living room while Keith Gresham beat another woman in her bedroom? She finally went next door to a convenience store to call 911 after it had gone on for a while.

      Yes she did not want to offend her crack dealer. She is also out awaiting sentencing for credit card theft, they must not plan on sending her to prison after 10 felonies.
