Dim Crims: Woman arrested 396 times

Fifty-two-year-old Shermain Miles  of Chicago has been arrested 396 times in the past 35 years. Her offenses ranged from disorderly conduct and theft to attacking a City Council member. In June, a judge sentenced her to time served after she agreed to get mental health and substance abuse treatment.  She was released Monday from the Logan Correctional Center in Lincoln. On her train journey home, Miles said that she's not a 'bad person' but that alcohol had turned her "into a monster."  She was headed Monday to a residential home for ex-inmates and says she's permanently given up drugs and alcohol.  [Source]  [BJS]
