Michigan Parole Board to Hear Case of Fugitive Mom

The Michigan Parole Board will consider whether to release a California woman who was returned to prison 32 years after she escaped.

Susan LeFevre's parole hearing Thursday will be conducted via video from her Ypsilanti prison to a parole panel in Lansing.

LeFevre had asked a Saginaw judge to toss her original 10-year sentence for selling heroin. The judge last month instead asked the parole board to consider the case.

LeFevre is a 54-year-old from the San Diego area who was living under a different name when she was captured last April. She escaped from a prison in suburban Detroit in 1976 after serving about 14 months.

The parole board probably won't make a decision until the end of January. Prosecutors want LeFevre to serve about 3½ years total.
