A Chicago woman who was arrested 396 times says she’s ready to turn her life around after her release from prison.
Shermain Miles told the Chicago Sun-Times that she has given up drugs, alcohol and old friends who are into "drugging."
“It was not me, it was the alcohol, and I’m very sorry, I really apologize,” she told a reporter.
She said she had experienced family problems and “it was a lot of things.”
“I’m going to get some counseling for it and get myself together," she said.
Miles was released from prison on Monday after serving nearly a year for assaulting an alderman. Prison officials said she was a good prisoner who broke no rules. She will be living in a residential home for former inmates.
