While We’re Freeing Folks: Here’s Why Celebs Are Flocking To The Story Of The Wrongful Conviction Of Child Sex Slave Cyntoia Brown

Cyntoia Brown’s Wrongful Conviction Story
You may have scrolled past the story of 29-year-old Cyntoia Brown while browsing on social media earlier this week, as many celebs and news/gossip accounts have been publicizing the story of the circumstances that led to her sentencing to life in prison.
Cyntoia was convicted of murder at age 16, after shooting a 43-year-old “John” in the back of the head while being sex trafficked against her will. She was placed in a maximum security prison and has been living behind bars for the past 13 years. She’ll apparently be eligible for parole sometime around her 69th birthday.
Cyntoia, the daughter of a raped teenager who drank and did crack cocaine throughout her pregnancy according to the documentary on her sentencing, was a product of the Tennessee foster care system. She apparently found no real guidance or support system in the homes she was dwelling in, and according to Affinity, fell into drug use of her own and abusive relationships with adult men when she was only middle-school-aged herself.
One such relationship — with a then 24-year-old pimp by the street name of “Cut Throat” — led to her living from dive motel to dive motel and being forced to turn tricks for money while high on cocaine, all at his command/bidding. Via Spokesman:
He abused her physically and sexually. She said he once choked her until she passed out. Other times he pulled a gun on her.
“He would explain to me that some people were born whores, and that I was one, and I was a slut, and nobody’d want me but him, and the best thing I could do was just learn to be a good whore,” she testified.
He forced her to prostitute herself so that they would have money to live.
