The Pardon

The true story of Toni Jo Henry, a woman tried for the crime of murder in 1942 in the state of Louisiana.

Toni Jo, a product of childhood abuse and neglect, briefly discovers love and happiness that soon turns to despair when her husband Cowboy is sent to prison and she embarks on an ill-fated plan with an accomplice Arkie to free him.Because of her beauty, Toni Jo instantly becomes a notorious celebrity, drawing the unparalleled media attention of two highly publicized and sensational murder trials.

Her story is a story of hope, a story of love and a story of redemption, as Toni Jo discovers the true strength within herself and, with the help of a priest, Father Richard is able to face her life with a calm and peace that defies explanation.

Sneak Preview


Based on a true story, this is one that will move you to tears and give you hope.  Here were some highlights:

  • VERY tastefully done, especially the beginning.
  • The shocking reality of what people do when they are desperate.
  • The powerful last words of the man that was killed.
  • How unjust our legal system truly can be and was in this particular case.  You will be surprised as how unjust it was.
  • The love and patience shown by the priest.
  • Mercy shown in the midst of a very unfair trial.
  • Nothing goes unnoticed by God.
  • Powerful ending.

Even though this woman was far from being innocent…which one of us is any different?  We are all sinners and we all need a Savior.  I couldn’t help but wonder how much more we, as Christians, can be doing for our communities and even those in prison to lead them to Jesus.
