Nikki Addimando needs our help.  Here’s what you can do: Sign this petition to help us fight for her freedom.  Share her story on social media.  Donate to Nikki’s legal defense fund at https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/41Oqh7

Nicole “Nikki” Addimando is a victim of domestic violence and rape who was wrongfully prosecuted and convicted in April 2019 of second-degree murder after shooting and killing her abusive partner out of fear for her life. On February 11, 2020, she was given a horrific and unjust sentence of 19-years-to-life by Judge Edward T. McLoughlin in Dutchess County, NY. She is separated indefinitely from her two young children, ages 7 and 5.  She is a loving mother, friend, sister and daughter.  Her community longs to brings her home where she is loved and can heal.

Nikki’s appeal has been filed with the state of New York State Court of Appeals and she desperately needs our help.  

*****************************************************************Please sign this petition to tell Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Court of Appeals that Nikki’s constitutional rights have been violated and her conviction must be overturned!

At her sentencing, Nikki gave a powerful, personal statement:

“I wish more than anything it ended another way. I wouldn’t be in this courtroom right now, but I wouldn’t be alive either. This is why women don’t leave. They so often end up dead or where I’m standing — alive, but not free.”

On Tuesday, Nicole “Nikki” Addimando was sentenced to 19 years to life in prison for killing her abuser in self-defense. Judge Edward McLoughlin chose not to take into account the years of life-threatening physical and sexual abuse, which was documented in official police reports and medical records. He denied applying the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act for a lesser sentence. Despite her abuser’s multiple threats to end her and her children’s life if she fled, Judge McLoughlin felt Nikki “could’ve safely left.” We sat in on the sentencing and listened to Nikki give a powerful, personal statement:

“I wish more than anything it ended another way. I wouldn’t be in this courtroom right now, but I wouldn’t be alive either. This is why women don’t leave. They so often end up dead or where I’m standing — alive, but not free.”
