New Sam of California forgives victims of sexual trafficking who killed her pimp as a teenager

California Governor Gavin Newsom is Sara Kruzan, a former sex trafficking victim sentenced to life imprisonment as a teenager after years of abuse.・ I forgave Kruzan.

For 44-year-old Kurzan, this is the final stage of official redemption over a decade, with three governors from both parties.

Kurzan was tried as an adult after shooting and killing George Gilbert Howard in a motel room on the riverside during the failure of her robbery.

After shooting Howard from a short distance, Kurzan took off with cash from her purse and Jaguar key.

She was sentenced to life imprisonment and convicted in 1994 for the murder of a man who stated she had been sexually abused and she was trafficked at the age of 13. At that time she was 17 years old.

At age 17, Kruzan was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for shooting and killing George Gilbert Howard in 1994.

She was in prison for 18 years until Gob, then Newsom's predecessor. Democrat Jerry Brown granted her release in 2013.

Brown's predecessor, Gob at the time. Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger had already commuted his possible life imprisonment to 25 years shortly before his resignation in early 2011.

By then, Kurzan is a reform group trying to ease the severe life imprisonment of those who have committed crimes as state legislators and boys.

Democratic senator Leland Yee, who was later put in jail for corruption, described her case as "an adult who failed her, a perfect example of society failing her." I called it.

"You had a predator who stalked, raped, and forced her into prostitution, but no one was around her," Yee said.

Democratic Newsam said in a Friday amnesty that Kurzan had shown that she "lived an upright life" ever since.

Since the murder, he has said she "changes life and serves the community." According to Newsam, the amnesty does not minimize her crimes and the damage they caused, but "acknowledges the work she has done to transform herself."

Since taking office in January 2019, Newsome has given a total of 129 amnesty, 123 commutation and 35 grace.
