Support Barbara Sheehan's Application for Executive Clemency

    1. Petition by

      NYS Prisoner Assistance Center, Inc.

Barbara Sheehan was the victim of unspeakable abuses and she is now being made the victim again by a sentence that does not fit the facts of this case. Barbara has never broken the law and her only crime here was to be the multi decade victim of domestic abuse.

She has spent enough time in prison and she should now be granted executive clemency that would make her immediately eligible for parole release back to her family and community.

      EXCLUSIVE: Barbara Sheehan, acquitted in husband's killing, discusses her fight for justice

      NEW YORK (PIX11) - Six years ago, Barbara Sheehan made a fateful choice: kill or be killed. After suffering abuse for nearly two decades at the hands of her husband, a retired sergeant with the NYPD, she tried to escape her home. But it all ended in a hail of bullets.

      She served more time than any human being should have to living years of being abused by her husband.

      I believe it is a perverted use of the law for her to be in prison for defending herself.

      It's wrong. She shouldn't be in jail period.
