According to HuffPost Bresha Meadows was offered a plea deal for the murder of her father. Meadows has served nine months and was offered a plea deal of 18 months.
One of the more interesting topics over the last year has been the case of Bresha Meadows. Meadows, 15, has been accused of aggravated murder in the 2016 death of her father, Jonathan Meadows. Bresha’s mother, Brandi Meadows, and her aunt have emphasized the fact that Jonathan Meadows was known as a violent man who physically, psychologically and emotionally abused Bresha’s siblings and her mother. Which many believe caused Bresha to attack her father.
In 2011 Brandi Meadows filed a police report against Jonathan Meadows saying
“In the 17 years of our marriage, he has cut me, broke my ribs, fingers, the blood vessels in my hand, my mouth, blackened my eyes. I believe my nose was broken, If he finds us, I am 100 percent sure he will kill me and the children. … My life is like living in a box he created for me, and if I stepped out of that box, he’s there to put me back in that box.”
Jonathan Meadows’ sister Lena Cooper defended her brother by telling the media he was not a violent person. She acknowledged the domestic dispute in 2011 but believes that was an issue of the past.
