Jolana is Freed from Prison

The news report covers the moment when Jolana, a 29-year-old inmate of women’s prison in Světlá nad Sázavou imprisoned for thefts, is exiting the prison. She is packing her things, saying good-bye to fellow prisoners, returning the prison clothes and picking her personal items that she had to submit upon entering the prison 10 months ago.

This was her first conviction and she keeps saying she will never be back. She hopes to get her two small daughters back from children’s home.
