Grant Clemency for Wendy Maldonado

    2. Petition by

      Monique Savits

      Parkville, MD

Wendy Maldonado was in this horrifying marriage (or prison) for so long and became a victim of Battered Women’s Syndrome. Living in complete fear, she had one goal in mind, keep her boys safe! Wendy spent years in prison (in her marriage to Aaron) and then went directly into another prison, where she remains. It is time to let her go! She hasn’t known freedom since she was 17 years old. PLEASE reconsider her sentence and let her reunite with her boys.

Please sign this petition if you agree that it is time to set Wendy free!

      This woman should never have been sentenced to prison in the first place. 20 years of imprisonment by her horrendously abusive husband, then 8 years (and counting) in a state prison? It's insane. Free her already!

      It's time to reform our legal AND educational systems to better PREPARE AND PROTECT our women and children from violence and abuse. ENOUGH!

      She did what a lot of women wish they could do....I understand why she decided to deal with the situation the way she did. She was not only having to deal with him a abusing her but to have to see her children also go through the same pain. Everyone has a breaking point. She is a hero in my eyes. She sould be free!!

      The law is blind, and apparently not only deaf, but incapable of clarity of thought. No all laws are written correctly, that is why there are people to interpret.
