On her file, Mack also included several letters of reference, including from her brother, sister, and mother, saying that “your daughter’s friends and family are ready to move heaven and earth to assist her during her rehabilitation process.”
Last week, prosecutors asked the judge for leniency in sentencing Mack, whose crimes could result in 14 to 17 years in prison, Variety reported. Her verdict stated that she “respectfully requests the Tribunal to allow her to continue on this path of growth and reform by imposing a sentence without incarceration and allowing her to continue her academic studies.”
Since her arrest, Mack has tried to turn her life around. She worked for a catering company, earned an associate’s degree from an unnamed community college, and enrolled on a bachelor’s degree at UC Berkeley, the outlet reported.
Meanwhile, Mack undergoes another major life change while awaiting sentencing: In February, Mack filed for divorce from her four-year-old wife. Nicki Clyne.
