Aerial Snider started this petition to Release my grandmother and

In May of 2002 my Grandmother Alicia Morgan was arrested and charged with the murder of Steve Durbek. It’s been almost 21 years she’s been incarcerated and long past due she come home. Steve was the boyfriend of Alicias daughter, Loretta, He was extremely physically and verbally abusive to Loretta. He would beat her especially when he got drunk (and he drank alot) he’d hit her with beer bottles and objects within reach. He also beat on her two small children. He even shot her son in the back with a BB gun and threw her daughter threw a motel wall. Alicia told Steve to keep his hands off of her daughter and grandchildren but he wouldn’t listen. Alicia did the only thing she felt she could do to protect her babies. She believed if she didn’t, he’d have killed them. She fatally shot Steve and then called the police herself and smoked a cigarette while she waited for their arrival. To me, this should have been justifiable homicide and at most, given probation and possibly anger management. Since her incarceration she’s missed 7 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren being born,  2 of grandchildrens weddings, her mother’s death and many family members death. She was sentenced to 30 years... for a crime any caring protective mother would do to protect her babies. Wouldn’t you? What could stop you if someone was hurting your babies? Ask yourself that... I know it’s time for her to come home and reunite with her family. She’s already missed so much. She shouldnt miss anything more.
