News: “Was Cyntoia Brown sentenced to life for self-defense? Nope.”

A lot of people have been forwarding me articles about Cyntoia Brown, a then 16-year-old prostitute who was convicted of first-degree murder and aggravated robbery. Recent news coverage includes this very sympathetic piece from CNN and another from NPR, as well as a deluge of similarly sympathetic coverage from a wide variety of other sources.
