Cyntoia Brown Granted Clemency After 15 Years!!!
First Name Tom, Last Name Foolery… And I’m Everybody’s Uncle!
Especially this headliner… Cyntoia Brown.
A Tennessee woman who was convicted of murdering a man who picked her up for sex during a time when she says she was a trafficking victim has been granted clemency, nearly 15 years after being sentenced to life in prison.
Cyntoia Brown, 30, was tried as an adult at the age of 16 for killing a 43-year-old man while they were in bed. Brown said that she believed at the time that he was reaching for a gun, & that she feared for her life before she shot Johnny Allen in 2004. Allen was said to be paying her for sex.
Governor Bill Haslam granted her full commutation to parole on Monday, making her eligible for release on the 7th of August. Brown will then remain on parole for 10 years.
“Cyntoia Brown committed, by her own admission, a horrific crime at the age of 16,” Mr Haslam said in a statement.
”Yet, imposing a life sentence on a juvenile that would require her to serve at least 51 years before even being eligible for parole consideration is too harsh, especially in light of the extraordinary steps Ms. Brown has taken to rebuild her life.”
