Christmas has a whole new meaning for a woman being held at the Portage Correctional Centre. 

Margaret Romano spent Christmas away from home this year -- she's from Prince Edward Island but has been in remand for over five months. 


Romano says the overly-lengthy judicial process hasn't provided her a constructive experience.  She believes she'll be released into society with a bitter outlook.  Romano's now forced to exercise her only option for release, and that's admitting to a crime she says she didn't commit. 


Being separated from her family, she now has better appreciation for the holidays.  During her interview, Romano became very emotional, saying this is her worst Christmas ever.
