Barbara Sheehan was the victim of unspeakable abuses and she is now being made the victim again by a sentence that does not fit the facts of this case. Barbara has never broken the law and her only crime here was to be the multi decade victim of domestic abuse.
She has spent enough time in prison and she should now be granted executive clemency that would make her immediately eligible for parole release back to her family and community.
A petition has been created seeking support for her release - https://www.change.org/petitions/nys-governor-andrew-cuomo-support-barbara-sheehan-s-application-for-executive-clemency
