This story needed a little editing...
The Newsday story is about Hillary Rodham Clinton and a criminal case she defended long ago:
"Rodham was paid a $250 retainer for her services, minus 10 percent for court costs, records show. In her book, Hillary Clinton says the case spurred her to create the first rape hotline in Arkansas.
In 2005, while working in a laundry, she stole several hundred dollars worth of checks from her boss to buy drugs. She is now living in a halfway house and looking for work."
In context, the "her" is Hillary and the "she" is the victim of the crime,
are you sure?

I don't think you've got the "her" and "she" straight. Read the article again - it refers to the victim of a rape Hillary defended many years ago.
And it sounds like Hillary did a very competent job of it, too. She did just what a defense attorney is supposed to do.
