The Sin by Silence Bill (AB 593) now has a sister bill (AB 1593) moving through the California Senate!
With AB 1593, we are tackling parole reform! As you learned by watching Sin by Silence, many of the Convicted Women Against Abuse are denied parole due to the injustice that continues to happen during their parole hearings. In 2010, Glenda Crosley was denied because the Parole Board believed she “lacked insight” into her crime and could have found a way to leave her abusive situation. Even with all the evidence of abuse that Glenda’s lawyers presented at the hearing, the Board refused to take these elements into account. Where is the justice?
