Where is Cyntoia Brown now?
One of the conditions of Cyntoia early release from jail sees her on parole until January 2029 – this means she must not violate any state or federal laws, she must hold down a job and has to participate in regular counselling sessions.
Now 32 years old, she is happily married to musician Jamie Long.

She has spent much of her release from jail on a book tour promoting her autobiography.
What happened to Cyntoia Brown?
Cyntoia was charged with murdering a man in 2004 when she was a 16-year-old prostitute.
She was tried as an adult for killing 43-year-old estate agent Johnny Allen, who she said agreed to pay her $150 and drove her to his home in Nashville.
Her lawyers contended she was a victim of sex trafficking who not only feared for her life but also lacked the mental capacity to be culpable in the slaying because she was impaired by her mother's alcohol use while she was in the womb.
However she was found guilty in 2006 and jailed for life for the killing.
In January 2019, fifteen years after Brown was charged with murder, Gov Bill Haslam granted clemency because he viewed the 51 year sentence "too harsh" – she served 13 years in jail.
