Tepper seemed untroubled as she appeared in court Tuesday, having arrived on a standard prisoner bus from the Montgomery County jail in Norristown.
She appeared relaxed and comfortable in a cranberry jacket and black pants, answering questions about her guilty plea in a clear voice. Her attorney noted that sometimes jail life is less stressful than coping with life’s daily pressures.
“She found the prison to be very well run,” Steinberg said. “She said she thought that the people were very nice and she thought it was very well-organized and run.”
