Why this petition matters

Started by Pardon for Tina

Tina Talbot admits that she shot and killed her abusive husband in an act of fear and concern that he would kill her special needs son and herself. At the time of the shooting, Tina had been sexually abused and beaten for four straight days — suffering two partially collapsed lungs, a lacerated spleen, a broken arm, a broken wrist, severe trauma on her right thigh and a damaged sternum — due to the abuse of her long-term abusive husband.

She ended 20 years of violent physical abuse to save herself and her 7-year-old son.

Tina is not a criminal. She is a victim of domestic violence.

We are urging Governor Gretchen Whitmer to release Tina from prison with a pardon so she can return home and care for her special needs child.
