Jail Prisoner Allowed Furlough To Take Courses

Smock granted permission for a furlough from jail to take college courses on the Internet

SMETHPORT — After a brief, but emotionally charged hearing Thursday morning in McKean County Court, Nikole Smock was granted permission for a furlough from jail to take college courses on the Internet.

Smock, 20, of East Main Street, Bradford, is serving a sentence of 12 to 24 months incarceration on a charge of accidents involving injury.

On Dec. 30, 2007, in the parking lot adjacent to the Option House in Bradford, a vehicle driven by Smock, and in which Zachary Coon was a passenger, ran over Alissa Cameron, 20, and left the scene without stopping.

Smock had not been drinking, and had gone to the bar to pick up Coon.

Cameron died several days later in an Erie hospital from injuries suffered in the accident. More...

A disgrace. Maybe we should send her to Havard or Yale. She should be in State Prison instead of our local "Hotel Jail"

She can always take classes when she has served her time. Honestly. No wonder people act and behave the way they do. They figure they won't have to pay the price for their actions.

I think the length of the sentence is a joke. If she would have been selling crack in that parking lot, she'd be in prison for 10 years. She ran over a woman and killed her and gets 12 to 24 months? And, now she gets a furlough to go attend college classes on the Internet? I disagree completely with this judge's decision.

Sounds like Saxton is hoping to replace Holder as Attorney General for Obama. It's time to take our country back...

No what sense does this make. They are in jail for a reason. We should go back to the old days and lock them up and feed them bread and water. No HBO tv and free time out of the cells.

why can't she take the course while serving her time?
it is on the internet...not a classroom
acsses the local libriary or maybe one of the pc's in the office of the jail?

Are all you people the Judge ? No. Yeah, she messed up but it looks like she's atleast trying to do something with herself , beside getting online and bashing everyone. People you need to think before you speak.

Ms. Smock should be an inmate of the State Correctional system, NOT a county jail. Her being aloud a furlough for internet courses is a true slap in the face to the family of the woman that she so brutally murdered and left for dead. The district attorney's office and the County justice system completely failed the victim's family.

I'm glad that she is trying to better herself but why does it need done on tax payers dollars. Her sentence was/is so lite anyway for the crime that she should not be allowed any leeway while in jail.

And why should she be allowed to take classes while she is having everything paid for while, others in college trying to better themselves (myself included) are struggling to take courses and pay bills.

She should do her sentence and then take classes. But then again, with the criminal background check she probably won't be able to get a good job when she is done anyway so yeah lets really waste tax payers dollars!!!!
