Conditions of Imprisonment

Updated: Dec 10, 2021

Christa has been held in solitary confinement for 24 years as of January 2021, which is exacerbating her underlying mental health issues.


Christa has been held in solitary confinement for 24 years as of January 2021. Despite receiving treatment for her Bipolar Disorder, her prolonged solitary confinement has had “an irreparable impact on her psychological, emotional, and physical well-being” as stated in an application on her behalf.


As the only woman on death row in Tennessee, these conditions are unique to Christa. Men on death row in Tennessee are housed together and allowed to work whereas Christa spends 22 to 23 hours per day in a “room smaller than a parking space.”
