More Than a Stat: Meet People Impacted by Extreme Prison Sentences

Sonya Pyles and Morgan Hale both know how excessive prison sentences can tear families apart.
Sonya is a Women in Recovery graduate and project coordinator for Tulsa Lawyers for Children. Repeat sentence penalties for nonviolent offenses kept her in prison and away from her young children for too long - she served nearly three years of a six-year sentence that was extended due to prior nonviolent convictions.
Morgan is a TU Law student whose childhood was marked by her uncle’s incarceration. He was given a life sentence for three nonviolent drug-related convictions. She’s now working to help Oklahomans like him navigate the justice system.
Join us for a panel and Q&A with Sonya and Morgan as they discuss how cruel and unfair sentences impacted their families, and how SQ 805 can prevent sentences that are out of proportion to the crimes.
