Pam has cycled in and out of jail many times because of her addiction to alcohol and heroin. Her testimony is often discredited because of her addictions, teaching Pam that no one will ever believe her side of the story, so why bother to tell it.
It was only after a judge admitted her to a six month rehabilitation center that Pam was able to begin work on the cycles of abuse and addiction that kept her tied to prostitution. Pam now works as a manager at TJ Maxx and few people know her story of the past.
