Back in 1998, Browder was arrested after his girlfriend's mother caught them having oral sex. The police charged him in connection with a string of assaults on young girls in his Bronx neighborhood.
"It was like kidnapping, rape, forcible touching, sodomy, a bunch of stuff," he said. "They threw the book at me." The then-15-year-old Browder ended up pleading guilty to just one charge—sodomy—which required him to register as a Level Three sex offender. The Bronx native works to honor the legacy of his brother Kalief Browder, and mother Venida Browder by working with elected official, lawyers, doctors, college students and community based organizations to change laws, policies and regulations that devastate poor communities and families that have been impacted by mass incarceration and solitary confinement in State prisons. - 3 hours ago
