In 1986, Bonnie Jean Foreshaw, the first person to shoot and kill a pregnant woman in the state of Connecticut, was sentenced to 45 years in prison without the possibility of parole. We believe it is the longest sentence given to a woman in state history. Foreshaw, now 64 years old, is seeking a reduction in sentence from 45 years to 40 years. She had been denied — for the second time — even a hearing on a modest proposal for a sentence reduction. A hearing request was denied in 2007 and, again this spring. She is now being afforded the opportunity for a clemency hearing before the Board of Pardons and Parole, which will take place in October 2013.
