Last month, I mentioned Jane Evelyn Atwood’s TV interview and to Jane’s appeal in support of Gaile Owens‘. A campaign operated to have Gaile’s death sentence commuted to life imprisonment. Gaile will be eligible for parole in late 2011.

Jane contacted me this morning with this piece of good news. “Please be informed that Gaile Owen’s sentence has been commuted by the Governor of the State of Tennessee to a life sentence.  She will no longer be executed on September 28. Thank you for your support, thank you for helping save Gaile Owen’s life.”

Why stop here? Please inform yourself and others about domestic violence and the violence it can engender.
