Manacles and chains. That may be the picture you conjure when you think of Susan MacDougal. Imprisoned for murder? No. She merely refused to answer questions from a federal grand jury as a part of Kenneth Starr’s investigation of President Clinton. For that crime, she was imprisoned for contempt of court and obstruction of justice, and served 22 months behind bars. Recently a federal jury acquitted her of the charges. Since her release, she has taken on the issue of the condition of women prisoners.
