BREAKING: #cyntoniabrown has been granted full clemency by the governor of Tennessee.
A Tennessee court previously ruled that #cyntoiabrown, a Tennessee woman and sex trafficking victim, would have to serve a life sentence in prison for shooting and killing a man who was sexually assaulting her when she was 16.
And while having her sentence commuted is worth celebrating, remember that Cyntoia Brown has been in prison for 14 years and will be on parole for 10 years. We must question the justice system that allowed this, and fight for others in similar situations who haven’t been freed.
