The court proceedings that spurred the #FreeBresha movement have come to a close. Bresha Meadows‘s supporters, including her family and attorneys, attested that she shot her abusive father in an act of self-defense. To reunite with her family, she’s made a deal that could see her return home much sooner.
Meadows, 15, has accepted a plea of “true” to a reduced charge of involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of her father. She was sentenced to one year and a day in the custody of the Department of Youth Services, including time already served, and six months at a mental health facility, according to WFMJ.
