Cyntoia Brown, Sex-Trafficking Victim, Must Serve 51 Years Before Release, Court Says

Brown, who was allegedly forced into prostitution, is serving a life prison sentence for killing a man she allegedly thought was going to shoot her.

Cyntoia Brown, a Tennessee woman who was convicted as a teenager for shooting a man who picked her up while she was a victim of sex-trafficking, must remain in prison for at least 51 years before she is eligible for release, Tennessee’s Supreme Court said Thursday.

The court’s opinion was in response to a lawsuit that argues that Brown’s life sentence is unconstitutional due to a 2012 ruling by the U.S. Supreme court that said mandatory life sentences without parole for juveniles violates the U.S. Constitution

In response to the court’s opinion, the Women’s March on Saturday announced a nationwide march in support of Brown and other sex-trafficking victims to be held on Jan. 19.

Brown was 16 years old in 2004 when she killed real estate agent Johnny Allen, 43. At the time, Brown had run away from home and was living with her 24-year-old boyfriend, a pimp known as “Kut Throat,” who raped her and forced her into prostitution, according to Brown’s lawyers

According to court documents, Allen solicited Brown for sex, then brought her back to his home and showed her his guns. Later in bed, Brown said, she thought Allen was reaching for his gun to shoot her, so she grabbed a handgun from her purse and shot him first.

Brown then removed money from Allen’s wallet, took his guns and drove his truck to a Walmart, the court documents said.

Brown was tried as an adult, convicted of first-degree murder, felony murder and especially aggravated robbery and was sentenced to life in prison for Allen’s death in 2006. She was also diagnosed with fetal alcohol syndrome in 2012.

Tennessee’s Supreme Court on Thursday said that, under the state’s law, defendants like Brown who were convicted of first-degree murder after July 1, 1995, can only be released from prison after serving at least 51 years of their sentences. 

Brown has described her life sentence as a “cruel and unusual punishment,” pointing to the 2012 Supreme Court ruling on mandatory life sentences without parole for juveniles, according to court documents.

But a U.S. District Court in Tennessee denied Brown’s motion, noting that she received a “life sentence, not a sentence of life without the possibility of parole.”

Brown has appealed that decision, which is pending before the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Brown’s case was thrust into the spotlight after PBS debuted a documentary on her, titled “Me Facing Life: Cyntoia’s Story” in 2011. In recent years, celebrities, including Kim Kardashian West and Rihanna, have rallied in support of Brown and raising awareness around Brown as a victim of sex-trafficking.

JUST A LITTLE INFO ABOUT THIS YOUNG GIRL BEING UNJUSTLY CONVICTED. SHE'S A CHILD AND A WHITE WOMAN WAS GIVEN 1 YEAR FOR KILLING HER HUSBAND. SO YOU KNOW THIS IS WRONG WRONG WRONG.

Just lets you know just how racist they are in Tennessee. 

The jury had to be racist, the judge had to be racist, the prosecutor, of course was racist, and every piece of sh!t from the beginning to the end of her trial had to be a racist piece of sh!t, because if this girl didn't have any Black in her,  they wouldn't have given her such an inhumane/crime against humanity sentence.

So, this little girl was really sentenced for being Black/part Black, period.  Had nothing to do with anything esle.  

This is the kind of sh!t racist White psychopaths do that make it hard to NOT to believe that the White is the "spawn of Satan", are "demons", are the freaking "Devil incarnate".

 

We as women and girls make choices. Don't care what age one is. Why go with a bastard called "Kut Throat?" That right there says T.R.O.U.B.L.E. Men don't much care about women these days. They're killing women's daughters left and right. Every woman's just some woman's little baby girl grown to adulthood. If a man's into prostitution, that means he's going to want you to perform some kind of sexual deviancy for money in his pockets, and he might kill you to get his wish. If the pecker's that good to ya, see ya. Tell your family bye-bye!! Maybe your mother or father can make your funeral and burial (can't think of the words I want to use here. I'm old!!) ("Plans" sounds good enough.) Arrangements!! (Better!)Tell everyone you know "See ya!!" Don't forget to pick  a pretty headstone for yourself.

  You know my sista you are soooooo right.  They are racists and wanna go back to them Jim Crow days where their white men  do the buck breaking thing they did with our men during slavery.  They hate the fact that we are free.  And will do ANYTHING to make us pay for being FREE.  This is a child.  Number one.  Number two.  If she was WHITE?  She wouldn't be in jail today.  How many white whores have they caught on the streets and let go?  So calling it a racist move is on the money my sista.  Blackfolks better get their shit together.  Whites still have a lot of power.  And they still hate iggers  for not "taking care of them"  Did you know that during slavery there were a lot of SEX farms?  They are called by different names.....breeding farms, orgies farms etc.?  Massa was/is a sex preying MONSTER.  He and Miss Ann did horrific, brutal things to our people. They were sooooooooo cruel they don't want it in the history books cuz it will  darken their lily white Christian image.  And sex trafficking today is an offset from African slavery-even though it occurred before the Diaspora.  As why it is now called "white" slavery.  Unfortunately our young people get caught up in it too but it's totally unfair how our black teens are treated even though they are being pimped out.  Like they have no value as a humans.   As why black folks need to readdress how they feel about the bible.  Cuz history says it is just a whimsical book of unrealistic fantasy to justify slavery during the Christian crusade and the collapse of Sweden system of thralldom.  Havent a thing to do with Jesus-which of course the real Jesus was [ the name of ] the ship that brought Africans to the New World.   But!        

 

Ahhh, somethng's wrong with so-called "white" people. They're all over my TV made up to the gills. Do you really know what they look like when that hair grows where that hair's supposed to grow?? NO!! Crystal Gail's hair drags the ground just from the back. Imagine if that was the front too. White men with beards that drag the ground, moustaches, beards, hair all over their bodies; no damn lips. I swear the Japanese Snow Monkeys look like their relatives.These bastards are ruling over us and we can't do a damn think about it but complain. These fuckers are sicker than sick. Yeah, I said it!!!!! I mean it too!!!! P:resident Obama wouldn't have stayed in the White's House two seconds doing the shit Cinnamon Man does. He'd be dead by now. JFK'd!!!!!! White folks are giving me the doo-doos. Severe cases!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  I agree!  You are sooooooooooooooooo right sista Norland.  And Crystal Gails' hair is a fake attempt at beauty. But the thing is?  I think white folks  realize that everyone gonna KNOW the truth about HOW they inherited the New World. And how Europe acquired their wealth.   It doesn't look good for so-called Christians-despite what those television Christians say.  Cuz Christianity was a tool to justify SLAVERY.  Bottom line. That's why the christian crusade was so important for the Western Hemisphere.  Now they can talk this subhuman bullshit until the cows come home but the truth of the matter is....when they could no longer enslaved their people?  They went on the hunt for a substitute and went into detail about how this group does not qualify to be human therefore cruel treatment and mishandling will not be questioned.  But those Quakers? You gotta give it to them.  They KNEW it was wrong from the get go and fought for us from the very beginning.  And if you notice was given very little CREDIT for seeing us as humans.  

So when I hear Black folks talk about how much of a Christian they are?  I just roll my eyes and say to myself "you brainwashed fool."  I was with an Asian friend of mine the other day and we were talking when her colleague joined us and wanted her to participate in a seminar with a lot Black men attending.  My friend politely refused.  Side note:  This Asian woman has been apart of the Black Community for over 25 years.  She keeps to herself though.   Anyway, the Black woman ignored her refusal and went to talk about the people who are attending are all Christians who look out for each other and she (the Asian woman) should get to know them blah blah blah....it's part of the networking apparatus...etc.  My friend continued to say no.  Longstory short.  Then heifer started getting aggressive-almost being a bully by telling her she should go when it was absolutely clear she didn't want to.  I didn't say a word.  

 Finally, the Black woman left.  I turned to my friend I will call Lucy.  I said "Lucy you are a grown ass woman you don't have to do a damn thing anybody says.  Who the hell is she?  And what does Christianity have to do with attending a program?"  If she was worldly informed [like she pretends to be] she would understand that some in the  Asian community have the wrong idea about Black men.  Many still believe the myths about them having tails and are hypersexual brutes. [propaganda spewed during Jim Crow].   Plus she has a husband.  And in many  Asians households the husband is the authoritative leader and it is what he says that goes.  So  if he found out that his wife was socializing with Black men[no matter how innocent]....it would be a problem for her.   I tell this story because massa has spread so many LIES about African people who live in America known as Black.  And regardless if others have a close relationship with a Black person....in the back of their minds many STILL believe the myths...even though in their hearts they know it is not true.  It's called brainwashing, conditioning and programming what to believe about Black people.  It is not the truth and I have told her many things to unravel the LIES that have gone worldwide.  And I know believing those LIES is to KEEP from seeing the TRUTH about massa and his Christian belief.  Cuz his rhetoric is a distraction from what the truth is.  And the truth is what massa has done to African slaves for over 450 years clearly  shows  the world that he is subhuman, a monster, predator,  psycho path.....NEANDERTHAL.   And this is why there is panic today.  Cuz the truth is sipping out.  Most importantly, this is why white folks are willing to collapse the entire country so that they can revisit OWNING  slaves.....cuz as we see?  They cannot survive without us.  And if they can't have us.....we can't have ourselves...which is what this whole social paradigm in America is currently doing.  Attempting to change back to those DARK  times of human horror and immoral arrogance.  Just a thought.  But!

Listen, when some asshole tells me I have a tail; I will pull down my slacks, pull down my drawers and tell them to show me where my fucking tail is!! I don't care if it'll be in downtown of my city and help my ass be hauled off to jail, I'll bet there'll be no tail found here!!  All these Jesus Freaks Christians. Come here and mess with me; it'll embarrass my family and hit the TV and the NEWS, but guaranteed!! There's no tail connected to my ass anywhere. Come here and put me through the test!! I'm ready!! My days of shyness are long gone. 8,000 babies, a couple nigritos here and there, mess with me and I've got something for ya!!!! It's old and grey but it still looks good and I kid you not!!!!! Not only that, I know how to wash it, powder this and that and make the stuff smell GOOD!!!!! Ain't no slouch here!!!!!!! Streamlined and cool!! That's me!! I ain't bragging, I'm tellin' ya like it T.I.S. TIZZ!!!!!

  My sista I know for a fact Black don't crack!!!!  So I believe you!!!  Plus you are beautiful from the inside out....and your stellar physicality is just icing on the cake.    When black people take care of themselves and hold on to the innate beauty  we inherit from Africa?   We always LOOK good....no matter our age.  Cuz with us?  Age and beauty are timeless.   But!
