McLOUD — After 15 years, Tondalao Hall walked out of prison and into her children’s arms Friday.
Gov. Kevin Stitt commuted her 30-year prison sentence during a week that has been filled with second chances for hundreds of people involved in Oklahoma’s criminal justice system.
Hall had been serving time for failing to protect her children from their abusive father. Their father, who admitted to breaking the leg, ribs and toe of their daughter when she was just 3 months old, served just two years in jail and was released.
The stark contrast of their punishments drew outrage from advocates.
