Bresha Meadows, 15, just received a real-life get out of jail free card.

On Monday, the Ohio teen who fatally shot her father in his sleep last summer, accepted the charge of involuntary manslaughter, ending a legal ordeal that began back in August 2016. Bresha finalized a plea deal with Trumbull County prosecutors that will soon have her free from behind bars.

NBC News reports that as part of a plea agreement, Bresha was sentenced to a year and a day in juvenile detention, as well as six additional months at a residential mental health facility and two years of probation. She’ll get credit for time served, so she can move to the mental health facility in about two months.

Bresha’s record will be sealed and expunged by the time she reaches adulthood. As for the cost of the mental health facility, Meadows’ family maybe footing the bill with the money they received from the GoFundMe account they made for the teen. You may recall that Bresha shot and killed her father, Jonathan Meadows, on July 28, 2016 for beating her mother in front of her and threatened the family with a gun.

Bresha’s lawyer, said the teen has since been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety.

The #FreeBresha movement has continued on social media.

  1. Are we supposed to kill? No…but the fact that this man was killed by his daughter because of senseless physical abuse garners no sympathy for him. Although it was done the wrong way…the young lady was protecting her family. She doesn’t deserve punishment. She however does deserve treatment physically, mentally and emotionally. No telling what this man did to her as well as her family.

  2. I’m still struggling to figure out why she was jailed in the first place. Did she put this animal down while he was beating her mother, or did she pump it full of lead while he was asleep? Unlike a lot of abused women, she was able to leave this beast and start to build a normal, healthy life for her and her children, but what does she do? She takes her children and goes right back to the dog that had been abusing them for years. I blame her wholeheartedly for what happened. Shame on her.

  3. Bresha is going to need a great deal of therapy to cope with the killing of her father.
    I wish this young lady all the success in the world and truly hope and pray that she
    can overcome her PTSD and become a productive adult in society.
