Theresa Wilson--a first-time, nonviolent drug offender--tried to sell a prescription medication to an undercover police officer for $150 back in 1998. She was tried as a "drug baron" under this state's strict narcotics laws, and sentenced to life in prison. On Wednesday, the 34-year-old mother of two got perhaps the first break of her life. She was freed. "You've gotten a second chance," said Jefferson County Circuit Judge Tommy Nail. "Don't blow it."

When allowed to speak, he first denounced the United States for staging a "coup d'etat," then said the Americans had tricked him into leaving.
