Flynt was convicted of manslaughter in the shooting of his adult daughter’s girlfriend.  The family had gotten together for Easter.  Flynt and his adult daughter argued so Flynt took his more recent family to his body shop.  The daughter and her girlfriend descended upon the body shop.  The girlfriend ends up getting shot in a struggle over a gun.  Flynt maintained he got the gun out after the girlfriend repeatedly attacked him.

Flynt is being represented on appeal by the Criminal Law Clinic at the University of Mississippi.
