Annika Östberg is today back on Swedish mark,
after spending 28 years in Californian prison!
Annika moved to USA as a little preschool girl, her mother meet an American man. The couple experienced that the daughter was in the way of their new love. Annika had to move to his relatives. Unwanted and unloved, she did as most unseen kids, she went into a way of living that was bad for her. As expected, by 12 she got into youth prison. She escaped from youth prison at the age of 13, and lived as a prostitute for living, and to stand out in this situation she started to use heroin in the flower power era in San Francisco. At 15 she gave birth to a son! (He later died in a car accident 1985).
From childhood and on and on her life was field of tragedies and criminal acting out. It ended up with a scene where Annikas boyfriend shoot a policeman to death. They had stopped their car, and Annika went into the "ladies" in the woods, a police car stopped, and Annika went back to the car, the the boyfriend shoot the policeman. Annika got prison for life for "distracting" the policeman when she came back to the car. 28 years she has spent in American prison, fostering their police dogs. Today she arrived to Sweden, at Hinseberg Prison. One must be thankful that she did not get the electric chair for existing on this earth! To me she got into prison when her parents did not want her any more when she was 5-6 years old.
Welcome back - may You get peace in life in Sweden!
