NANCY SEAMAN ACTED IN SELF-DEFENSE. SHE HAD NO OTHER CHOICE AT THE TIME. HER VERDICT WAS OVERTURNED BY THE STATE COURT IN 2005 AND BY THE FEDERAL COURT IN 2010.  SHE HAS THE SUPPORT OF THREE JUDGES!  WE URGE YOU TO SET HER FREE.  

We are petitioning Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer to grant clemency for NANCY SEAMAN.  She has been in prison since 2004 and is 66-years-old.  

Nancy killed her abusive husband in self-defense when he attacked her because she was leaving him. Her trial judge, Honorable Jack McDonald, overturned her conviction in 2005 because the jury had insufficient evidence. Federal Honorable Judge Bernard Friedman also overturned the verdict in 2010.

You can read their letters to Governor Snyder on the Justice Thru Storytelling, Inc. website at www.jtsadvocates.com.   

These judges support her clemency. And we do, too! 

Read the attached letter written by Nancy Seaman describing her own journey and advocating for change to Michigan's archaic ruling...People v Christel.   The jury verdict was overturned by Judge Jack McDonald in August 2005 based on the severe limitations of expert testimony in the courtroom because of this law.  Had the expert been able to testify about Nancy Seaman in full to the jury, Judge Jack McDonald said that it's highly probable they would have never charged her with first degree murder and sentenced her to LIFE in prison.
