The former Michigan Supreme Court Justice says she is afraid because it is possible she sentenced inmates in her prison facility.

Hathaway wants to be able to spend the last 6 months of her sentence doing at-home detention or she wants to be released early.

This past May, she was sentenced to 1 year in prison for bank fraud.
