Kemba Smith got involved romantically with a drug dealer while she was a student at Hampton University. She worked for him as a "mule," a low-level operative who does support work for a drug dealer. When the dealer was arrested, Kemba was indicted as a co-conspirator. She is now serving a 24 1/2 year sentence with no chance for parole. The story looks at the wisdom of warehousing thousands of young Americans--many of them black and female--through mandatory drug sentences for nonviolent offenders.
