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.
"I took that person from them. Of course I would tell them that I apologize. If they would ever want an opportunity to speak with me, I'd be more than happy to." Cyntoia Brown-Long shares her message to the family of Johnny Allen, the man she killed pic.twitter.com/Pyx1kKGQDz
