Cyntonia Brown, the 29-year-old sex trafficking victim who was sentenced to life in prison for killing the man who bought her as a sex slave at 16, might soon be receiving aid from none other than Kim Kardashian West. The reality star and budding cosmetics titan has been vocal about her outrage for Brown's continued sentence, and this week tweeted that she had asked her legal team to get involved.
\u201cThe system has failed. It\u2019s heart breaking to see a young girl sex trafficked then when she has the courage to fight back is jailed for life! We have to do better & do what\u2019s right. I\u2019ve called my attorneys yesterday to see what can be done to fix this. #FreeCyntoiaBrown\u201d
Brown's imprisonment -- which is in the spotlight again thanks to a Fox 17 news segment and the ensuing interest from celebrities like Rihanna and Snoop Dogg -- is a total failure of the justice system, and the media's current attention to sexual violence could mean that this young woman is finally given the justice she deserves.
