Today, the story of Cyntoia Brown — now Cyntoia Brown Long — will air on small screens across the U.S. in a new documentary titled Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story. The new Netflix film explores why Brown Long was put in prison for killing her abuser, and why it took so long for her release.
At only 16 years old, Brown Long was tried as an adult and given a life sentence for shooting and killing Johnny Michael Allen in self-defense. At the time of his death, Allen was an adult who solicited her for sex when she was working as a prostitute one night.
