Starr said the kids had perfect attendance in school and so Spottedcrow would see them when they got off the bus Thursday afternoon.
“My first day on the yard they told me I wouldn’t do more than six months and then they told me I wouldn’t do more than a year,” Spottedcrow said. “Then they told me I wouldn’t do more than a year and six months. Just the up and down and how that made me feel, I couldn’t even fathom putting my kids through that. I can’t wait to see my kids. They have no idea. This is going to be a total surprise.”
Meanwhile, Laura Deskin, Spottedcrow’s attorney who is working pro-bono said Spottedcrow still has to pay some court fees back to the state and will be on probation for the next eight years.
“I’m glad that she was given early release,” Deskin said. ”I am grateful to the Pardon and Parole Board and to the governor but she never should have been in this position in the first place.”
“Instead of sending women to prison we need to try and help them before you just send them to prison because prison could turn a good person bad, it really can,” Spottedcrow said.
Spottedcrow’s two-year incarceration cost tax payers about $30,000, according to KFOR-TV. The Tulsa World conducted an extensive investigation into Oklahoma’s prison system and why, according to its investigation, the state sends more women to prison per capita then any other state.
