Chicago Woman Ordered to Seek Help After 396 Arrests

Tuesday, 11 Jun 2013 10:03 AM

A Chicago woman who has been arrested 396 times in the past 35 years has been ordered to get mental health and substance abuse treatment in a deal with prosecutors.

Fifty-one-year-old Shermain Miles, who's been in the Logan Correctional Center in Lincoln since December for violating parole, appeared in a Cook County court on Monday to plead guilty to charges she attacked a city alderman. She also pleaded guilty to trespassing and public drinking in separate cases.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports a judge sentenced her to time served in all three, because Miles agreed to undergo a mental health evaluation and get follow-up treatment.

Miles, who is homeless, has dozens of convictions for felonies and misdemeanors.

The paper says she thanked a judge for the opportunity to get help.
