Cyntoia Brown walks free

Cyntoia Brown, 31, walked out of the Tennessee Prison for Women in Nashville before sunrise on Wednesday

She was granted clemency by then-Tennessee Gov Bill Haslam in January after celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Rihanna rallied for her release

She will remain on parole supervision for 10 years on the condition she holds a job and does not violate any laws

Brown said she was a sex trafficking victim when she shot dead real estate agent Johnny Allen in 2004 when she was just 16

She shot Allen in the back of the head at close range after he picked her up at a drive-in restaurant in Nashville to have sex with her

Brown has maintained she feared for her life and thought he was going to kill her

Prosecutors had argued during her trial that she killed Allen in order to rob him because she fled in his truck with two of his rifles and $172
