Tondalo Hall

Women and Adversity: Tondalo Hall

Unfairly Imprisoned in Oklahoma

A friend sent me an email about a woman in Oklahoma who was severely beaten by a man. He received a two-year prison sentence, but the woman, Tondalo Hall, received a 30-year prison sentence for “failing to protect” her children.

Huff Post Women writes:

Shortly after bringing her 20-month-old son to the hospital after noticing his leg was swollen, Tondalo Hall was arrested. She is now serving a 30-year sentence in Oklahoma, for allegedly “enabling” the abuse of her son and 3-month-old daughter at the hands of then-boyfriend, Robert Braxton Jr.

Tondalo applied for a commutation, which is a special kind of clemency. She could be released if enough people sign a petition requesting it.

Clicking on this link takes you to the petition and further explanation.
