Cyntoia Brown, a Nashville woman and alleged sex trafficking victim whose case drew national attention after being sentenced to life in prison for killing a man at age 16, was released on parole today, the Tennessean reports. Now 31, she will be on parole for 10 years. Conditions of her parole include her compliance with an approved release plan, that she maintain employment or educational enrollment and that she participate in regular counseling sessions. She's also required to perform at least 50 hours of community service, including working with at-risk youth. Earlier this year, former Gov. Bill Haslam took the rare step of commuting Brown's sentence, paving the way for her release.
