Cyntoia Brown: Finally free after being jailed for life at 16 following celebrity-backed campaign

She’s been behind bars since she was 16 – jailed for life for murdering a man she claimed was buying her for sex.

This August, Cyntoia Brown was freed from prison on clemency – and has written a memoir about her extraordinary life.

A life of teenage homelessness, of rape and sex slavery – of managing to get not one but two university degrees in prison – and launching a petition for clemency which went viral.
