Brown Long, who spent 15 years in prison, was 16 years old when she was accused of murdering 43-year-old real estate agent Johnny Mitchell Allen.
At the time, Brown Long said she was a sex trafficking victim under a pimp called & # 39; Kut Throat & # 39; who forced her into prostitution.
Brown Long is said to have shot Allen because she thought he was reaching for a gun in a bedroom in his house.
Prosecutors argued that Brown Long did not defend itself, but tried to rob Allen.
She was tried as an adult, convicted of first-degree murder and given life in prison.
She would be 69 years old by the time she was eligible for conditional release.
Her story was the basis for the documentary 2011, & # 39; Me Facing Life: Cyntoia & # 39; s Story & # 39;, which caught the attention of activist groups and celebrities such as Kim Kardashian West.

Brown was released from prison in August after Governor Bill Haslam granted her leniency.
She remains conditionally free for 10 years, but is grateful.
Brown Long said: "One of the best moments was the night I celebrated my release with my entire family and everyone who had made a difference in my life in the last 15 years," said NBC News.
& # 39; Looking around and seeing how everything came together, and how everyone was co-shipping and happy, was just incredible, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I didn't present myself as a 16-year-old who went to jail and needed help. I was a mature woman with my calling from God. This was my coming party. & # 39;
