She is an accomplished ATTORNEY!!......I will assume she knows the law, however, it is also no excuse. As she well knows, ignorance of the law is not an excuse.

Yes, along with all the good-natured christians who help the disenfranchised.
Honestly, I don't buy it. What motive would a little old lady have to intentionally help someone of ill-will?
Anyway, if I were going to jail, Isure as hell would be screaming innocence as well. Are you really surprised that she denies it??
