MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Should a repeat offender be thrown in jail or be put in a program to get help after she's been arrested 117 times over the past three decades?

A local group says Theresa Little needs help not jail. She's been arrested and charged for various offenses including driving without a license, shoplifting, and stealing cars.

Little appeared in court to face charges after police say she snuck cocaine and contraband into a penal institution Oct. 29.

Outside the courtroom a group called "Back On Your Feet" held a small protest. The group says a person with as many arrests as little needs help not prison orange.

"This is somebody that needs help as far as drug counseling and drug program, as well as for mental health as well because she is partially bi-polar," Leslie Washington said.  "We are down here to protest she gets help, not incarceration."

Little is due back in court Wednesday morning and is being held in jail on $25,000 bond.
