Free Cyntoia Brown

When she was only 16, Cyntoia Brown was forced into sex trafficking. She was drugged and raped over and over by many different men, and then she was sold as a sex slave to a 43 year old pedophile by the name of Johnny Mitchell Allen. Brown shot him in the back of the head as he lay naked beside her. She was charged with murder and sentenced to life in prison with no parole until she is 69.
13 years have passed. She is at the Tennessee Prison For Women, and even though the state changed their law in 2011 so that no minors can be charged for prostitution, she remains. This is absolutely unacceptable. Brown did what she had to do for her own safety. It was undoubtedly an act of self-defense. She never once denied shooting Allen, stating herself that it was her only option. No person should ever be arrested for rightfully defending themselves, especially when they are a child sex slave whose years of trauma under their belt will only worsen under a life sentence. Her childhood is gone, her life is ruined, and absolutely none of it is by any fault of her own. Cyntoia Brown must be freed.
