*The brother to San Francisco Mayor London Breed may be getting out of prison sooner than planned. A judge dropped his manslaughter charges due to the latest changes to state law. However, some social media users think the decision is an outcome of some backroom deal, which may not be valid.
Brooke Jenkins, San Francisco D.A., was appointed by Mayor Breed, while the prosecutors viciously fought against Napoleon Brown, the mayor’s brother getting a lighter sentence.
Due to recent state law changes, Brown deserves an early prison release, as his defense attorney claims.
Attorney Marc Zilversmit, who represents said, “Under the old law, felony murder, anybody who’s involved in a felony, where someone dies, is guilty of murder, under the new law, you actually have to be the actual killer or act with intent to kill.”

Brown was convicted for the June 2000 robbery of Johnny Rockets in the Marina District. He was also convicted of carjacking and murder, later reduced to manslaughter. In the middle of the Golden Gate Bridge, Brown pushed the getaway car’s driver, his girlfriend Lenties White, onto the pavement. She died after being hit by a drunk driver.
There on the bridge, Lenties White was able to tell police, “S.B. threw me out of the car.”
She died later at the hospital. Napoleon Brown admitted “S.B.” is his nickname, “Sonny Boy.”
Now, with that part of the case set aside, Brown will be resentenced in the coming weeks on the robbery and carjacking.
His current 44 years and four months could be reduced to the point he gets out of prison in the coming weeks.
