A Brother and Sister Face Off
Patricia was the first person serving a life sentence in prison who Governor Newsom granted an emergency compassionate release due to COVID-19. Today, at age 69, Patricia says she feels like she has missed out on so much of her life and blames her brother, Ishmael, who is seeing his sister for the first time on Dr. Phil. Patricia was tried and convicted of murdering her son, Quincey’s, father 24 years ago despite her continued insistence that she did not commit the crime. She claims Ishmael lied in court, which led to her conviction. But Ishmael says he never lied – he claims authorities twisted his words. Patricia’s grandson, Suge Knight Jr., the son of former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight, says he stands by his grandmother and makes a plea for prison reform.
