Cyntoia Brown has an interesting story.

As a teen, she was a victim of sex trafficking. When she was 16, she spent 15 years behind bars for killing a man who was allegedly soliciting sex.

We covered the story, she was granted clemency in August. Brown kept busy behind bars, she earned a college degree and got married to a Christian rapper, J Long. 

Reported on the Jasmine Brand, Cyntoia detailed how she and her husband met. She says that he came across her video on YouTube, learned about her story, and wanted to write her. 

“I was minding my business and she had been on my YouTube screen for like three days and I didn’t pay attention to it. I eventually pressed play, and I felt in my spirit to write a letter and here we are now. [God] spoke to me.”

Long said that he was surprised Brown wrote him back. He also said that even if she was still locked up today, he would have still married her.
