She is a survivor of domestic violence and sex trafficking who was sentenced to Life Without the Possibility of Parole (LWOP) after being charged with murder. While in prison, she has focused on healing and supporting other victims of human trafficking. According to survivedandpunished.org., her self-advocacy and commitment to freedom led the way to securing her commutation on November 21, 2018. She further had the support of thousands of people who signed a petition, sent her letters, and raised awareness about her case on social media.
