After serving 15 years in prison for first-degree murder, Cyntoia Brown was released yesterday and is now a free woman. Brown had been convicted at age 16 after she had killed a man who was soliciting her for sex. The young woman was being sex trafficked and was simply defending herself at the time. Her case garnered the attention of huge names in the entertainment industry and eventually, her release was fought for and achieved. It was a huge win for the 31-year-old who can finally experience adulthood outside of the confines of the prison system.
