Tondalao Hall is a domestic violence survivor sentenced to 30 years behind bars under a "failure to protect" law. Tondalao was punished for not leaving her abuser quickly enough, before he could inflict physical abuse on their children.

The abuser, Robert Braxton, was released back to the streets the day he was sentenced for child abuse, with only 8 years of probation to serve.

Tondalao, the adult victim of his abuse, is now serving her 15th year behind bars.

She has 20 more years left to serve.

 Hall is 1 of 28 women sentenced across 11 states under “Failure to Protect” laws who are serving more time than the abuser himself. Hall’s appeal for justice could have broader implications for the lives of women across the Nation.

​Courts must not use Failure to Protect laws to further victimize survivors of domestic violence by scapegoating them for their batterers’ crimes.

Failure to Protect laws must not hold domestic violence victims with children to an impossible standard of choosing between risking their lives (and their children's’ lives) and risking their freedom.

After 13 years behind bars, Tondalao has served enough time for a crime she didn't commit. 

At this time, District Attorney David Prater has issued a letter of support calling for her release by supporting her reduced sentence. 

We encourage you to do what's necessary to reduce Tondalao Hall's sentence and get her back to her children.
