A judge generously freed Diane McCloud from jail so that she could get a heart transplant. McCloud repaid that kindness by continuing to commit crimes. Now McCloud will have to serve her original sentence plus an extra year. As McCloud's doctor says that her heart will eventually give out, there's a chance this penalty could be a life sentence for the woman.
In January, Judge Francis Ricigliano let McCloud out of jail 15 months early so that she could get a life-saving heart transplant, reports the New York Post. But instead of using that time to extend her life, McCloud robbed drug stores.
