Coming Monday on Isiah Factor Uncensored… An exclusive interview with Cyntoia Brown Long and her husband and my good friend J. Long… She talked about life after prison and how she’s trying to make a lasting impact after being freed on the murder charge! #CyntoiaBrown#JLong @j.longjfam
More about Cyntoia:
Cyntoia Brown Long (born January 29, 1988) is an American woman who was convicted of the murder and robbery of Johnny Michael Allen. Brown, who was 16 years old and involuntarily being prostituted at the time of the murder, claimed that Allen had paid her $150 to have sex with him, and that she feared for her life during their encounter, leading her to shoot him. Prosecutors argued that Brown killed Allen while he was sleeping in order to rob him. Brown was found guilty of robbing and murdering Allen and sentenced to life imprisonment.
She would have been eligible for parole at the age of 67. After renewed interest in her case in 2017, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam commuted her original sentence to 15 years and Brown was released on August 7, 2019. Her story is detailed in the 2011 documentary Me Facing Life: Cyntoia’s Story and in her memoir, Free Cyntoia: My Search for Redemption in the American Prison System.
