Kim Kardashian & Other Celebs Celebrate Cyntoia Brown Being Granted Clemency

Kim Kardashian is celebrating Cyntoia Brown being granted clemency.

The 30-year-old Tennessee inmate was imprisoned back in 2006 after being convicted of murdering a man who had solicited her for sex when she was a 16-year-old sex trafficking victim.

Cyntoia was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after serving a minimum of 51 years.

But thanks to the help of famous supporters like Kim, Cyntoia was granted executive clemency by Governor Bill Haslam and will be released from prison on August 7th after serving 15 years.

“Thank you Governor Haslam,” Kim tweeted, after bringing the case to her lawyers’ attention in 2017.

Other celebrities including Sophia Bush and Jada Pinkett Smith also celebrated the news.
