The 51-year old has been locked up since December for crimes she committed while on parole for an armed robbery conviction and listened quietly while a judge told her:

"All of us are reaching out to you and offering you, maybe for the first time in your life, a hand, Okay? But you've got to reach out and grab all of our hands as well."

Monday's sentencing of professional assistance for Miles stemmed from her latest arrests: one for an alleged assault and two for trespassing and drinking in public.

Miles has agreed to mental health evaluation and follow-up treatment, along with a program for alcohol abuse.

Overall, she has been booked 92 times for theft; 65 times for disorderly conduct; 59 times for prostitution-related crimes; and five times for robbery or attempted robbery.
