Crusader For Justice Kim Kardashian Launches Attorney in Cyntoia Brown Case

Crusader For Justice Kim Kardashian Launches Attorney in Cyntoia Brown Case

On August 6, 2004, 43-year-old Johnny Allen solicited Brown and took her to his home.

Cyntoia, now 29, has earned her Associate's Degree from Lipscomb University while in prison and is currently working towards her Bachelor's Degree.

The prosecution argued that Brown did not act in self-defence, as she left the scene with the man's wallet.

Taking to social media, they have railed against the result of Brown's court proceedings, which saw her tried as an adult instead of as an abused minor. The story does not entirely match court documents from Brown's case, including her own statement about the night of the killing.

At the age of 16, Cyntoia Brown found herself raped and trafficked by a pimp named "KuttThroat" in Nashville, Tennessee.

Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old grandmother, has served 21 years into a life sentence for her first-time, nonviolent drug conviction. You end up finding enough courage to fight back and shoot and kill him. Brown is now serving a life sentence in the Tennessee Prison for Women in Nashville.

Upon learning about Brown's story, the three-time National Basketball Association champion posted an excerpt from an article, before asking: "What's really going on here man!?!?" She was 16 at the time, and she won't be eligible for parole until she is in her late 60s.

Holley confirmed the news and spoke to the Blast saying that Kardashian enlisted her help to assist Brown a long while ago. She said that she was terrified of Allen, who behaved in a threatening manner, had multiple guns in his home and had experience in the military. She also said she reached for the gun because she thought he "was gonna get a gun or he is gonna do something to me", and that she "just... reacted", using a gun provided to her by Cut-throat.

The same post was later shared by Kim Kardashian, Cara Delevigne, and other celebrities, journalists and activists, who questioned why an underage girl involved in prostitution was given such a harsh sentence. I've called my attorneys to see what can be done to fix this.

"Did we somehow change the definition of #JUSTICE along the way?" A social media posting went viral after Rihanna put it on Instagram on Tuesday.

"Something his horribly wrong when the system enables these rapists and the victim is thrown away for life", Rihanna wrote in her Instagram caption.

Filmmaker Daniel Birman made a documentary about the case in 2011, entitled Me Facing Life: Cyntoia's Story. The documentary generated renewed interest in her case and helped her find a lawyer to push for sentencing relief.
