Oklahoma woman imprisoned in failure-to-protect case is freeAn Oklahoma woman whose sentence for failing to report her boyfriend’s abuse of her children was far harsher than his for the abuse itself wiped away tears and hugged family and friends Friday as she was released after 15 years. Tondalao Hall, 35, left a women’s prison in McLoud, Oklahoma, after serving about 13 more years behind bars than her boyfriend, who pleaded guilty in 2006 but was released on probation with credit for time served. “Blessed to be with my family, I just want to be with my family,” Hall said as she walked away from the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center on the eastern edge of Oklahoma City.
