WOMEN ON DEATH ROW
You may want to write to one of the 50 women on death row in the USA,
because: many have been abused sexually, physically, and mentally all their lives. Added to
this is the often brutal, abusive, degrading, and inhuman treatment by prison guards and officials. 
A third of the women surveyed said that corrections officers watch them when they use the
toilet, shower or change clothes. Many women on death row live in almost complete isolation, which puts them at a serious risk of developing mental illness, or exacerbating existing mental
illness. 
In Florida,Sunny Jacobs who was on death row there for 18 years before being exonerated and released, lost the use of her vocal cords for some time because of the complete isolation
of her imprisonment. (Unfortunately, her boy friend who was also exonerated had already been
executed). A guard who felt sorry for her gave her some money so she could get a bus away from the prison when she was released. Sunny was never indemnified by the State of Florida for her false inhuman imprisonment and near execution. 

Prison is a very lonely place. You must always be on guard and very careful in trusting anyone. May of these women, as it is for many prisoners, have lost contact with family or friends. Women on Death Row also must deal with problems similar to those men on death row contend
with, such as ineffective and inadequate defense counsel; misconduct by prosecutors or the police; struggles with drug and alcohol addictions; and having their co-defendant receive a reduced non-death sentence for
testifying against them.

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Morgan Smith Florida

Morgan Smith. Wow. Just, wow. She came from a family of mental illnesses with a father who committed suicide. She had spent her life on psychotropic drugs for severe depression and borderline personality disorder, the same thing that causes multiple personalities. She also became a sex slave for Daryl Smith in a long-term relationship that ended with a child.

Their relationship was everything the weird, late night, HBO documentaries say those things are. She met him after work and groveled at his feet in a leather outfit complete with chain leash and dog collar. She licked his boots clean and said thank you after he spanked her ass. She was a complete, total submissive, and seemed to enjoy being that way. She even changed her last name to his legally, even though he would not marry her. He had told her many times; no matter what she did, she would never be his wife.

Eventually he found another woman he was interested in, Andrea Stranko, and left Morgan and their
daughter. It devasta…

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
