Vintage press photo dated from October of ‘57, features Candy Barr behind the bars of a courthouse prison, after losing an appeal to overturn a ridiculous 15-year sentence for marijuana possession..

Fortunately, she would only end up serving 3 Years + 91 Days in a Huntsville prison, before finally being released..
