Today on Felony Friday Judy Henderson joins John to talk about the unbelievable injustice she suffered in the criminal justice system. In 1982, Judy Henderson was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 50 years for her role in a robbery-turned-murder. Her boyfriend at the time – the man who committed a robbery, fired a gun, killed someone, and shot Henderson herself in the process – went free, while Henderson did the time.
In December of 2017, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens commuted Judy Henderson’s sentence to time served: 36 years and 111 days. The Governor reached this decision after he and his counsel reviewed thousands of pages of reports, court transcripts, letters, and records related to Henderson’s case.
