She should've never been in jail to begin with.

He was a youth minister and a real estate agent. She killed him in cold blood while he was sleeping at his house and then robbed him. After she killed him she stole his guns, $170 cash, and his truck. She lost every appeal all the way up to and including the state supreme court. The governor pardoned her because celebrities wanted him to.

There were articles that included that part of the story on a recent thread about her case. I haven't been able to find that thread, but you may be able to Google articles regarding her petition for clemency.

That's how some of the media reports characterized it, though. He's just going off what he read in the media, probably.

Here we go again.

The revisionism of history continues.

Some of the people blindly supporting Brown can't even get their own principles and beliefs straight. They'll falsely claim that Brown was trafficked and abused by the victim. Or they'll say that the victim 'deserved' to be brutally executed in his sleep, because he paid for the company of a prostitute (one that willingly went with him). These are probably the same people that think prostitution should be legalized and regulated, or think that if certain politicians were caught procuring a prostitute or engaging in prostitution, then that is no one's business but his own and no big deal.

Brown was granted clemency due to the continued revisionist history being given by her supporters including clueless celebrities. The governor didn't want to seem like the 'bad' guy, even though the jury and lead detective knew very well what a twisted and dangerous person Brown is. I take some measure of comfort in knowing she served 15 years, so it wasn't like she faced no punishment. But based on her cold blooded act, she certainly deserved to spend more time in prison.

For those that still don't get it, please do fully read the letter from the lead detective that details her sordid acts.

First and foremost, Cyntoia Brown did not commit this murder because she was a child sex slave as her advocates would like you to believe. Cyntoia Brown’s motive for murdering Johnny Allen in his sleep was robbery....

What was he doing alone with a teenage girl in his home?

A minor cannot be a prostitute because her consent is irrelevant.

If it were a 16 year old high school student willingly having sex with her math teacher, it would be statuatory rape. A 16 year old cannot legally consent to sex with an adult. So it does not matter if Brown went willingly with the victim. It was still statuatory rape. And I would question how willingly she went ... or if she was being pressured by her pimp who was controlling (trafficking) her.

She was a PROBABLY (adding that after reading investigator's letter) victim of human trafficking.
Maybe the average John thinks they're just hookers but they're slaves.
Not to open a can of worms but the people screaming about slavery should be looking in the present, not the past.
Who was her "boyfriend" and how old was he when she was 16?
What was a youth minister/realtor doing with $10K cash?
What was up with her parents not reporting her gone?

Brown ran away from home at 16 and hooked up with a pimp. She lived with him and supported both of them by prostituting herself. I don't see any evidence that she tried to get away from the pimp. She then picked up a "john" and slept with him for money. While he was asleep she shot him in the back of his head. She then stole his money, his truck, etc. and brought it all back to the pimp. She was charged with murder for shooting the "john" while he was asleep and stealing his things. At no time did she act against the guy pimping her around or try to escape from the life of prostitution.
