Patty Prewitt is currently serving a life sentence after being convicted of murdering her husband, Bill, 38 years ago. The now 73-year-old insists she’s innocent – and has many people supporting her bid for clemency.
Brian Reichart, Prewitt’s attorney, says he believes clemency is the only option for her.

“We’re hoping that clemency is a way for Patty to be reunited with the family, and we’re hoping that Governor Mike Parson of Missouri finally has the courage to act,” Reichart says.
In the video above, also hear from two Missouri state representatives, Shamed Dogan (R) and Tracy McCreery (D), who have spearheaded a group of bipartisan lawmakers to sign a letter to the Governor begging for mercy.
