Gov. Bill Haslam said his administration is reviewing information about possible clemency for Cyntoia Brown, a victim of sex trafficking who killed a man who picked her up when she was 14-years-old, WPLN reports. Brown, who was convicted at 16, is now 29 and has seen her case recently brought into the public eye by celebrities and human rights organizations. Haslam said that the process could take more than a year, however. As governor, Haslam has yet to release anyone from prison.
