Celebrities Rally behind a Woman Convicted of Killing her Offenders

For Cyntoia Brown, her life was over when she was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of a man who used to oppress her. She had gotten used to her life in prison and never thought that she would draw the attention of Class A celebrities in America. To her surprise, she received the support of prominent celebrities in America such as Kim Kardashian West, Cara Delevingne, Snoop Dogg as well as LeBron James. Rihanna was also by her side. She might receive the help of these celebrities who have in the past used their huge social media following to advocate for people like Ms. Brown. At the moment, Ms. Brown is 29 years, and according to her lawyer, she had been subjected to sex trafficking as a child. At the age of 16, she had enough with her boss, and she killed him.

Her case, however, has not passed without attention in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. Ms. Brown recently appeared in a documentary about child trafficking known as PBS. The latest social media onslaught is said to have begun when her story was aired by a local station. Charles Bone says that he has been with the case as a pro bono for the last seven years. He said that he was very pleased with the fact that well-known celebrities had decided to speak for his client. He further said that Ms. Brown was very happy about the issue. During her trial, her mother even testified saying that she would drink whiskey every day. This happened even when she was pregnant with Brown Cyntoia.

As a result, she developed a condition known as fetal alcohol syndrome which inhibited the growth of Ms. Brown’s brain. However, when foster life became unbearable, she ran away at the age of 16 to Nashville where she lived with a man known as Kut Throat. She once told the Associated Press that her master would tell her that she was born a whore. She further said that the master told her that the only person who loved her was him. A Tennessee court determined that she should be tried as an adult. At the end of the hearing, they determined that she was guilty of aggravated robbery and first-degree murder. The court could not agree with her self-defense claim. As we speak, Ms. Brown is in Tennessee Prison for Women. Parole will become available to her when she is 67.
