The Bay City Times reports that an ?activist group" will be conducting a rally in Lansing Friday to "pressure" Gov. Jennifer Granholm to grant clemency "to certain female prisoners." One of the, is Luanne Szenay, who was convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in 1990. The rally hopes to bring attention to 15 clemency petitions before the governor and organizers are calling for release of "battered women prisoners who acted in self-defense against abusers but did not receive due process or fair trials."
