A sex-trafficking victim who killed a man in 2004 was released from prison Wednesday morning.
Cyntoia Brown was only 16-years-old when she killed 43-year-old Nashville real estate agent Johnny Allen. According to court documents, Brown shot Allen in the back of the head at close range with a gun she brought to rob him after he picked her up at a drive-in restaurant in Nashville to have sex with her. She was convicted for the murder in 2008.
Brown, now 31, will remain on parole supervision for 10 years after her release, on the condition that she does not violate any state or federal laws, holds a job, and participates in regular counseling sessions.
In 2004, Brown ran away from her foster family in Nashville. She began living in a hotel with a man known as “Cut Throat”, who forced her to become a prostitute and verbally, physically and sexually assaulted her, according to court documents.
According to CBS News, Brown plans to release a book in mid-October.
