Convict Santra Rucker Pen Pals With Alicia Keys

Star magazine spoke with 33 year old Santra Rucker who is serving a 390 year sentence for conspiracy to sell drugs. Rucker claims to be receiving two letters a week from , “We started off writing as friends, then we began to exchange spiritual messages. Then it became sisterly love.” Rucker claims she is innocent of the charges and has had Keys help her win freedom. Rucker has written to 150 politicians, and many times has Keys stamp and mail them.

For her part, Keys explained in an interview about her single ‘Fallin’, “I got the idea for the video from a magazine article I read in New York about a woman called Santra Rucker. It just broke my heart. She was dating a drug dealer. He set her up, she went to court and got found guilty by association. She got sentenced to 13 consecutive life sentences: 390 years. I’m writing to her now, because I’m feelin’ what she’s goin’ through. I’ve been like her. That could be me in there.”

    She was just a scapegoat. Dude was a lame. That guilt by association crap is the lazy mans way out in trying a case. The Judge should never have allowed any statements from inmates who claimed the saw her before. Please these cats were already locked up. The judge should have been fired and her attorneys I’m surprised no real nukkaz went after him and that lame dope boy. By now she has learned a valuable lesson let her GO!!!

    I also did time with Santra she is a wonderful, talented ,intelligent Woman, mother and friend. her story is an American tragedy and everyone should be afraid because if it could happen to her it could happen to any of us. Keep fighting San God got you.!!!

  19. TheRealness says:

    It is extremely sad how most of us women would put their life on the line for these men when they wouldn’t do the same for you. And our population associate that with being real. Be real to yourself and save your own life. People talk a good game and feel bad for her, so why don’t you rally for her! The reason you won’t is because we’ve lost where we’ve come from and you are only concerned about yourself.

  20. shmeka Knox says:

    Heavenly Father ,today I ask you for the guidance of your Holy
    Spirit . Lord,please enable me to live the life to which you’ve
    Called me. Amen

    Just a prayer I use for my self. I just feel it might help you
    You after reading your story. God has something better down the road
    Of life for you.
