164. the only problem with that is that her lawyers were pleading for lieniency -- it doesn't have
same weight as if she had actually attempted suicide and a medical doctor came forth saying she was in imminent danger. also, this was in the early 90s, prior to her recent statements claiming that we shouldn't believe a suicide. i give this maybe a half-point in terms of counter-example, given the lawyer's interest in keeping her out of jail.

also given that she had not been sentenced, nor had exhausted appeal -- she had every reason to look forward to fighting the conviction. if this were after the sentencing and appeal, i'd me more swayed by the pleading.
