"She has really made a difference in her community and across the country," Singleton told CNN. On the night of the robbery, Patterson and her friend had a chance encounter with a group of five people who were later involved in the robbery, Singleton told CNN. While in prison, Patterson became a certified GED tutor, completed a paralegal training program and received a steam engineer's license. "I can't forget what happened to me, but I will do what I can to make sure it doesn't happen to anyone else," Patterson told CNN. "The fight hasn't stopped and it won't stop until we clear her name," Singleton told CNN.
