Casement is still a reporter, but it’s a career she’ll never get over.
She’s a member of the editorial staff of the Miami Herald and the editor-in-chief of the Sun Sentinel.
Her father, who also served as a U.S. Army veteran, was a newspaperman in the 1970s and 1980s.
In a series of letters from prison, she described how she tried to help others during her prison stint, but she was told that she was too young to do that.
“You can’t be a reporter,” Casement wrote in a letter.
“I want to be an educator and a leader, and I can’t do it.”
In the letter, Casement also talked about her struggles with depression, which she struggled to address in the penitentiary.
She said she was not strong enough to face her past, and that she couldn’t forgive herself.
The letters were published in 2012.
Casement’s letters were the first to be published in a newspaper, and they became an instant hit among readers.
“The letters were a lot more personal than I would have imagined,” said Casement, who now lives in Florida.
“They were not written for me to forgive myself.
They were written to me, and to the people I care about, to the inmates who I worked with.
I just wanted them to understand why I was in prison and what I had gone through.”
A year later, Casements brother and fellow inmate Ricky Hester was sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing a police officer.
Hester had also pleaded guilty to killing a former girlfriend and had been sentenced to 10 years to life.
But a judge ruled in 2012 that Hester’s mental health had deteriorated in prison, and he was released in 2015.
Casements letters, which were also published in the Sun-Sentinel, were widely read, and were included in a book called “The Letters.”
In them, Casings brother talks about how he came to be in prison.
“My brother had a lot of friends in prison,” Casements sister, Lori, told AP.
“But we never really knew what he was thinking.
He was a kind, caring, caring person.
But he did have a problem.”
“We knew he had some mental issues, but we never realized that they were such a big part of his life,” Lori Casement said.
“His brother had some issues, and his brother was just trying to make it work for him.”
After Hester died, the judge sentenced Casement to life without parole.
“She was the first person to come forward,” Casings sister said.
Casings family has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the city of Miami and the county of Miami-Dade.
“When you go into a jail, there’s always someone who knows you better than you know yourself,” Lori said.
She added that she doesn’t know if Casement will ever get the help she needs.
“For my brother, that’s not the way I want to go,” Casments sister said, adding that she has been trying to contact the Miami-dade district attorney’s office since last year.
“We’re hoping that they will listen to us and make a decision that is just for her and her family,” she said.
In 2013, Miami- Dade County elected the first black mayor in the city’s history.
“This is a city that has been on fire for so long that this is just one of the many things that happened in the past year that made people realize we can change things,” Mayor Joe Garcia said at the time.
“That we can make this a city where we’re proud to be.
It is time for a change.”
The city has since created a task force that has released nearly 3,000 people into the community.
Casters brother was sentenced on murder charges, but a judge later dropped the charges against Hester.
Hesters brother has since been released from prison.
But the family said that their brother has a long way to go to make sure his brother is not released from jail.
“If we can do anything to make that happen, then that would be wonderful,” Casers brother said.
