Drug-dealing moms avoid prison time

By Xinhua in Nanjing | China Daily | Updated: 2016-01-08 07:56

Zhi Hui, 35, has become the unlikely poster child for women dealing drugs in Nanjing after she evaded prison five times on grounds that she was a mother.

Zhi, a single mother of three, was pregnant with her first son when she was caught in 2011 for possession of 150 grams of methamphetamine and heroin.

"The police said I could post bail and stay at home. Then, after a year, I accidentally became pregnant again. I needed to make money to raise my children, so I had a third baby to stay away from jail and sustain my drug business," Zhi said in an interview with Xinhua.
