Earlier this week, the harrowing story of #CyntoiaBrown went viral. The 16-year-old was arrested and tried as an adult for murder after shooting and killing the man who used her as a sex slave.
Cyntoia received a 60-year sentence and isn’t eligible for parole until 51 years have been served.
The case reflects a perfect example of an extreme miscarriage of justice, since Cyntoia was a child and has since attracted the attention of top celebrities including SnoopDogg, TI and Kim Kardashian, who have publicly spoken about the case.
Kim actually volunteered to have her lawyer look into the case to see if there was any way to get justice and they’ve done just that!
Her attorney Shawn Holley says that she asked her “to help her find a way to help these women. We have already contacted Alice Johnson and her team of lawyers who are now actively trying to find ways to facilitate her release.”
You may recognize Holley as she was apart of Johnnie Cochran’s legal team that represented OJ Simpson back in the day.
