CASE ENTRY

Brown v. Jordan

Sixteen-year-old runaway (who’s been abused, forced into prostitution by pimp who goes by “Cut Throat”) shoots and kills customer, a Nashville, Tenn. real estate agent. She gets a life sentence. Sixth Circuit: Which could be a problem if there’s no possibility of parole. But the state’s sentencing laws are not clear on that point, so the Tennessee Supreme Court should weigh in. (The case is the subject of a documentary film.)
