"It's the takeaway, I'm tansy Nevada. How does the teenage trafficking victim end up facing more than five decades behind bars? That's the story of sin Toya Brown who's fifty one year sentence. Reignited the debate over the treatment of young women of color in our criminal Justice system. Brown was just sixteen when she shot and killed a forty three year old man who solicited her for sex. She was tried as an adult in Tennessee convicted of murder and sentenced to life behind bars in two thousand and six her legal team challenge that sentences unconstitutional pointing to a twenty twelve supreme court ruling that protects most juvenile's from life sentences without parole, but last week at Tennessee supreme court ruled that Brown won't be eligible for release until she served. Fifty one years. I spoke about Brown's case with Marshall Levick the chief legal officer at juvenile Law Center and Jerry Thomas the policy director with the campaign for youth Justice. It is deeply. Upsetting that it wasn't recognized that she was she was a teenager. She was underage and being solicited for sex, my organization, along with a number of organization truly believe there's no such thing as as a teenage prostitute. And this is this is a young girl who should not have been solicited. And this way, I do believe that she felt it was self defense. If you listen to her her describing the situation, she was she was in fear for her life. She believed that the man had will she knew that he had many guns that he was a sharp shooter in the military, and she believes that he was going to harm her that night. But unfortunately, that belief wasn't really taken into consideration. I feel to the extent that it, and it should have been Marsha. I wanna bring you in here. You could give us a sense of the supreme court decision that could provide a backdrop here, and how Brown's legal team has been. In using that to argue for her release unsuccessfully. Sure, the United States Supreme court in a series of decisions that began in two thousand five and then continued through two thousand sixteen essentially addressed sentencing for children who are being prosecuted and sentenced in the adult criminal Justice system and relying on our eighth amendment's ban on krone unusual punishment. The supreme court not only van the death penalty, but also banned life without parole sentences for children convicted of homicide in particular mandatory life sentences, and what has happened in the wake of those decisions is that we have seen a kind of I think toying with the decisions mandate in the sense that while courts are not in fact imposing life without parole sentences on many children across the country convicted of homicide, they are imposing virtual life sentences on those individuals, and by that, of course, it's exactly. What we see in sin Toya's case to impose a fifty year sentence on someone a forty year sentence or even higher sixty seventy year sentences on young people as they go into prison. We are dooming them if not necessarily to die in prison. We are creating a scenario where they will likely come out of prison on a stretcher or they will come out of prison with very little quality life experience left for them. Also want to bring up the issue that I think is is quite obvious in this conversation which is race and gender sin. Toya was a sixteen year old woman of color, and we know from federal data that women girls of color are disciplined more harshly in school. For example. I'm wondering if either of you could give me a sense of how race plays into her case specifically, and the reason why I'm asking this is because I think about more recent rape cases, for example. Jeffrey Epstein, I think about Brock Turner. I think about. Jacob anderson. These are all white men who while are not being convicted of murder their sentencing for, you know, sex crimes has been quite light to nil. So how does race play into this? It's it's impossible to have any conversation about our Justice system in this country without confronting race and racism, and the system is largely populated by men and women young women and young men of color, whether they are black or Brown, and that that legacy the legacy of racism slavery, white supremacy in this country has created a system that has I think frankly, become untenable and a constitutional democracy to tolerate the degree to which we have ravaged. I think communities of color in this country to re any any thoughts on that the racial disparities. Yes. So I would add again, what you when you mentioned that, you know, historically, there has been this issue of black youth and Brown youth being disproportionately impacted by the system. That's absolutely what we see in the data. So in two thousand and sixteen lucky were about fourteen percent of. The population. But fifty one point nine percent at the youth who were transferred by juvenile court judges in our country. And so we see we see the disproportionality and the number of young people being transferred to the dot system. We also see it in the types of sentences that young people receive. So according to the campaign for the pair sentencing of you. They have a new report, and which they they find that seventy two percent of the children's sentenced to life without parole sentences since the Miller decision by the supreme court have been black children. So Marsha was absolutely correct. There isn't really a way to disentangle the issue of black and Brown children being disproportionately negatively impacted by the adult criminal Justice system. Marcia does sin Toya have any legal recourse at this point? And more broadly. Are there other changes that our legal system needs to make to improve? So. That we don't see Morrison Toyo Brown's happening with respect to her legal options right now there is a clemency petition that has been presented to the governor of Tennessee. And there has been quite a bit of public support that has been expressed through social media helping that that clemency petition will be favorably reviewed. I think that what her case represents to me when I think about both here on personal circumstances and other sin Toya's out. There is that we need a new punishment paradigm in this country, and we need a new paradigm for how we deal with offending by by young men and women and boys girls, and I think what's important is that to the extent that we imagine our Justice system is about both holding individuals accountable and promoting public safety. These are two legitimate goals of any Justice system. The the sentence imposed on Sinn Toya what she is confronting in facing right now absent intervention. Is one that serves neither of those purposes. She is not a risk. She's no longer risk the time to protect the public through her incarceration has long since passed, and she's been held accountable. She's she's surely been held accountable having spent the number of years in prison that she has already spent there, and what what we hope and I think Jerry and I working in this field. We are constantly confronted. Unfortunately with stories like sin toys, and we are ever hopeful that that this will be the one this will be the one that will make us reevaluate that will make us sit up and say, no this can't be. But again, that's my hope here that the specter of a sixteen year old girl facing fifty one years in prison for a crime that was conducted in the in the face of sex trafficking and self defense situation, and even without those particular mitigating circumstances. We cannot allow our young people to face these kinds of sentences in this country. Marshall Levick is chief legal officer at juvenile Law Center. Thank you, Marcia. Thank you. Andrew Thomas is policy director with the campaign for youth Justice. Thank you jury. Thank you. And that's our show today. Remember, you can always find us on Facebook. And.

"With the years of trauma and in the most extreme cases it looks like what happened to britian meadows what happened to send toyo brown and the case that they were actually forced to take more extreme measures to protect themselves as a result of society essentially failing them and i think that it's not a coincidence that the whole issue it's antonio brown is kind of made a resurgence during the wake of these me to disclosures because i think it shows what me looks like for some of our most vulnerable girls still like one of the questions that i one of the most offensive questions that i'd come away from that quote with frankly as i mean here's the thing i think she's spot on and yet i think most people in prison who are the perpetrators of violent crimes are victims themselves in that way so we know that that doesn't provide a pass right that doesn't mean that murdering somebody even if it is in selfdefence gets you off the hook if you've been traumatized and your past i just wonder her how do we reconcile the obvious incredibly high rates of sexual abuse that lead many of these women and girls into the justice system to begin with with the very real need for their need to be crimes yield punishments you know that's a great question i think you can actually see an answer to that incident toya's defence basically they are saying that some that she should be let out know without serving any time what they are advocating for is actually that as a young person who committed a violent crime as a minor she should not be sentenced to life in prison without a chance to get parole yeah and so basically her team is arguing that what would make more sense is that it hurricanes could be reviewed in 15 to 20 years not fifty year after year which is the situation now and i mean at the outset she should have been tried as a child.
