ANDREA CIRCLE BEAR
Andrea Circle Bear of the Cheyenne River Sioux will never get to watch her baby grow up. She died more than three weeks after having an emergency C-section while on a ventilator, a victim of the coronavirus and a cruel justice system that saw fit to send a woman eight and a half months pregnant to a crowded federal women’s prison in Fort Worth.
She had received a two-year sentence on a minor, nonviolent drug charge. She had just turned 30.
