Billy Bob Thorton's Daughter Gets 20 Years in Florida Prison for Aggravated Manslaughter of a Child
Amanda Brumfield, the estranged daughter of actor Billy Bob Thorton, has been sentenced to 20-years in a Florida prison after being convicted of aggravated manslaughter of a child. The 1-year-old daughter of a friend mysteriously died while in Brumfield's care back in 2008 near Orlando.
"He's pretty much made me feel like I've been shut out," Brumfield told Inside Edition in an interview back in 2001. "I mean, I have nothing against him. I love him. He's my father. I just want him to be around. I don't want to cry, but it's not fair to watch him on TV every day, and I can't even get a call."
