Clemency for Tynice Hall 2.0
0 have signed. Let’s get to 75,000!
Tynice Hall was 22 years old with a new baby and looking forward to starting her life as a mom when she fell in love with a man who was involved in drugs. There was no tangible evidence linking Tynice to his drug dealing, but her association with this person caused her to receive a 35 year sentence for "conspiracy" - a law that holds each person responsible for the actions of others including the main target.
She regrets that she ever gave him a second glance, but she cannot turn back time and correct that decision. Tynice is a dear friend I have known for many years. She has strived to be the best version of herself to overcome the severity of her situation during the last decade in prison.
Tynice has taken over 75 classes, completed three apprenticeship programs, graduated from the School of Culinary Arts, taken several college courses online and is certified in grant writing from Naugatuck Valley Community College. She has over 2400 sentry hours, not including teaching classes like 'cage your rage" and is currently teaching reentry classes. She has matured into an active, intelligent woman that understands that it was her choices that led to her circumstances.
She has accepted responsibility for her actions and her decisions and should have a chance to move on with her life .
Tynice has also remained an integral part of her son Jonathon's life, but has been transferred to numerous federal prisons around the country, making it next to impossible for her son to visit. He has been without his mom since he was 3 years old. Now an active teenager, he says "I will be glad when they move her back close to home so we can see her."
Recently, Jonathan learned he has a blood clot on his brain, and surgery was performed. Tynice has been devastated. As if prison isn’t horrible enough, knowing your child is having surgery and you cannot be by their side is the ultimate torture for a mother.
President Obama has been granting clemencies to nonviolent drug offenders like Tynice and we pray that she will be on the next list. Please help by signing this petition.
