In her interviews with NBC’s Lester Holt and Today, Brown-Long shares her account of being arrested at 16 for first-degree murder, life in prison and her release last summer.

Brown-Long, 31, spent 15 years in prison after she was convicted of first-degree murder of Johnny Allen, a 43-year-old real estate agent, in 2004. At the time, she was just 16 years old and says she was a victim of sex-trafficking.
