Cyntoia Brown is granted clemency.


In 2004, Brown killed Johnny Mitchell Allen who she says had solicited her for sex and taken the 16-year-old back to his house. Prosecutors at the time said Brown shot Allen in the head while he was sleeping, stole money and guns, took his truck, and fled the scene. They argued the killing wasn't motivated by self-defense, but robbery. Brown said she was scared for her life by Allen's behavior, and took money for fear of returning empty-handed to her pimp, nicknamed "Cut Throat."
