Although Pamela may never be released from prison, Linda says it hasn't stopped her daughter from working to better herself. Years ago, Dr. Eleanor Pam became Pamela's academic mentor and helped her earn two master's degrees while in prison.
Now, Pamela spends her time teaching academic lessons to other inmates. "She's going to spend the rest of her days in prison, yet she wants to study, learn and improve herself," Dr. Pam says.
When she first met Pamela, Dr. Pam says she didn't know if she was innocent or guilty. Now, she says she knows for certain. "I believe absolutely that she's innocent," Dr. Pam says. "I think she should not spend one more day in prison, much less her entire life."
