A man purchased her as a slave for sex. She killed him. She was 16 at the time.

And she was afraid for her life. He had guns, and was behaving oddly with her, while brandishing a gun, leading her to believe that her life meant nothing to him.

Has there been any follow-up as to whether her trafficker was arrested and convicted?

I'm not for the death penalty or anything, but honestly, I don't see why they didn't give her a medal rather than stick her in prison for so long. She pretty much performed a public service. I don't even really care if she INTENDED to kill the guy all along - the dude kind of gave up all rights to his personal safety when he decided he was going to buy the chance to rape a kid. If he'd been arrested, I'd have expected him to be protected by the police until the issue wound through the courts, but I really have no problem with the child he planned to victimize taking him out before he got what he wanted.

A guy picked up a prostitute. That's not "purchasing a slave for sex."

I haven't been able to find that part of the story. Do you have a link to it?

Are you really arguing that it is a good thing for prostitutes to murder their Johns?
