Hello everyone, I am Leonna Abraham Brandao, Host for Blog Talk Radio/ Shedding Light. Today, we have on with us Judy Pickens, an incarcerated female, whom like many individuals wrongfully convicted, would like to get her story out. Entering the system at the age of 38 years, Judy has thus far served 14 years of her life sentence.
We know there is a large population of incarcerated men and women, who never get to tell their sides to the one sided stories, the media in most cases, tends to ignore. We are also aware that there are Mass Incarcerations in the united States in comparison to other Countries that do not have life/LWOP sentences. Mass Incarcerations in the United States, in many cases, is subsequent to guilty verdicts handed down, in spite of the lack of substantial evidence in cases, tampering of evidence, false witnesses and even in some cases, prosecutors, lawyers and judges.
My Philosophy is that everyone deserves to be heard and that there are always two-sides, sometimes three sides to every story. Therefore, for the next couple of days, we are going to have Judy talk about the nightmare and injustice, that led to her lifetime in prison. Let's welcome Judy Pickens.
Judy Pickens, currently at the Women of Eastern Region’s Diagnostic Correction’s Center in Vandalia, MO,
