  Santra Rucker was a cute around the way girl. She had the hottest labels and freshest hairstyles. She  did not have to worry about money,she dated a baller. Santra dated a drug dealer,Darryl Glen Riley.She herself, did not sell drugs. She however, was in love with a man who gave  her the best of everything. Riley,  was a well know street hustler.However, people did come to his house for business deals. She is in prison because of her love for a drug dealer.

Santra Rucker is in prison for 390 years because of her association with her boyfriend. The sentence was so extreme that Santra did not believe it herself. She has tried everything and nothing has worked.She is still in Club Fed.

Convicted and left to rot behind prison walls. Why would she face time? The truth is,you don’t have to sell drugs. Yes, If your man is a pusher and he cohabitates with you, you selling drugs to in the eyes of the law. The sad thing is that babies are also innocent victims in a drug raid. DSS will make you work like hell to get those babies, back. I know women in my neighborhood, that are going through this struggle today. The man has been in prison for years and DSS still does follow ups to check on their parenting skills.  A girl that works at DSS told me she had no sympathy for a woman who chooses a man over her kids. I told her, if she has been in that life, you wouldn’t see it that way. I told her that you can be in love with the money and become Ray Charles to the shit. Santra loved the money.Let’s be honest, drug dealers are treated like reverends, in communities by some.However, she was not a dealer, unfortunately that is not how it’s works.You know whats happening in that house.If the police come, during a drug bust,everyone goes down. Santra found this out the hard way.

People have protested and shown support. I know Alicia Keys and others have sent Santra Rucker letters. Alicia’s Grammy Award winning video for “Fallen” video was inspired by Santra Rucker’s case.

Serial Killers  don’t get 300 years for murder. Santra  was railroaded and forgotten. The government made her example. She fell in love, with the game. The game does not love you back. The hustle is real, but greed is the motivation.

If she could do it all over again, I am sure things would be different.I am sure she would have stayed away from this life. It’s gifts,and money and power. None of this lasts forever. Santra will never see freedom, and she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The court gave her 12 Life Sentences. She has spoken to 150 politicians. This woman should be home.This is simply ridiculous. I believe if you do  the crime;Do the time! However, she fell in love with the wrong man. What would happen if everyone that dated a drug dealer was given 390 years in prison? Would you  be reading this now?

We have to get this woman out of prison…real talk. messymandella

November 13th, 2012

We have to get Santra Rucker out of prison.

It has to happen.

We could start a petition, or rant and rave, but we need action.

The system is hard to crack.

There are non-profit organizations that will help provide legal support for those in need.

I am going to send some letters to different organizations.

I am hoping that we can come together and release her from “The Belly Of The Beast.”

390 Years is mental and physical Slavery.

  This woman is on my mind every day…

  1. so true and sad at the same time….I can relate…in so many ways

  2. I feel you on that. You really can’t win with the game.

  3. It is hard for me to understand how a person can get that much time for a non-violent crime. You must check who your are involved with. Words can not fathom what she is going throught. Good luck Santra, you are going to need some prayers.

  4. Does anyone know her mailing address?

    • I did look her up she is in Danbury Connecticut

      • I am so sorry I missed your question. Thank ya’ll for reading.

  5. I have been following this young lady’s story for some years. Praying that she’s granted clemency. Yes, we do need a petition to get the woman HOME! Has she learned a valuable lesson I believe so. I believe he testified against her for the DA smh. Whatever the outcome is God sits high and looks low Riley will have to answer before God for his actions. May God continue to BLESS Ms. Rucker, keep her steadfast and unmovable. The creator of this website “Big Ups” to you for not allowing Santra Rucker to be forgotten. So many yong women do become blindside by all that glitters. Not knowing that the enemey is in sheeps clothing! God Bless You All!!!

  6. Listen to this Sunday at 6:30pm Est. I am talking about Santra Rucker serving 13 sentences – LWOP + 5

    • Thank you for reading my article.I really appreciate it.Thank you!

  7. I always wondered if she was ever freed. This is crazy that she is still in prison for just being with a hustler. Stay strong ms rucker you have people that is in your corner. Let this be a lesson to all you young ladies who think its cool to be with hustlers. Dealing with them comes with a lot of issues, it ain’t all about the money and gifts. Sometimes you have to pay with your life or freedom

  8. Reblogged this on messymandella and commented:

  18. wow :/

    • I want her home sooner! Thank you for reading!

      • Grew up with Santra in Edmondson Village Baltimore glad she nows has a release date,i am a 27 year career marine santra went to jail about the time i started my military career,whats also funny is i live 45 miles now from her prison in Aliceville.

  19. everybody mistakes in her case 390 years sound a little hard,she was in the wrong place at the wrong time,I think 390years is and under statement

  20. Ummm while the length of her sentence was beyond crazy, her claim that she had no involvement in selling drugs is a straight up lie. She used to hang around the way in VA and it was WELL KNOWN that she was a supplier. She used to sell to a couple of my friends directly.

    • thank you for reading that sentence is beyond crazy. You don’t get that long for murder

      • Totally agree – her sentence was insane. But she shouldn’t be saying that she never had any involvement at all because that isn’t true. People would still stand behind her even if she admitted her wrong!

  21. Wow, I have always been amazed at this story. I have never heard or seen a women get 300 years in prison. I first read about this in FEDS magazine, I felt so bad for her, her family/children. It was so sad. Do you have any updates about her story or any recent pictures of her and what she looks like now.
