Claudette Henderson sits in the attorney conference room Saturday in the Boone County Jail, where she is serving time for a shoplifting charge. "It hurts to know that I could be a grandma to all of these kids in here," Henderson said. "They're so young and I'm 56-years-old." Henderson said many of the times that she's stolen something, she's had the money to purchase the item. Henderson has bipolar disorder and said the condition makes her crave the rush of excitement accompanied by shoplifting.
