Patty’s daughter Jane makes moving plea to Governor Mike Parson
Just days before Mother’s Day, Patty Prewitt’s daughter Jane wrote a moving letter that was published in the Kansas City Star. Noting that her mother entered prison 34 years ago last week, Jane writes that her mother “was forced to leave us five children behind. I was 16, and my youngest sibling was 8. We became orphans. Not only had our father been killed, but our poor mother was raped, dragged through the mud, wrongly convicted and then imprisoned.”
“Here we are 34 years later. Unbelievably, through it all, Mom has made us proud. She has continued to mother us the best she could through phone calls, letters and visits. She’s helped countless women from behind bars.”
Jane writes that she and her husband have a bedroom waiting for Patty, who is vulnerable to COVID-19 given her age and medical conditions. Read the full letter here. In 2018, Jane penned another article that can be viewed here. Want to add your voice in support of Patty’s release? Visit this page to learn how to contact the Governor.
Please, Gov. Mike Parson, be our hero with a stroke of your pen and allow our family to be reunited.”Jane Watkins
