Cyntoia Brown clemency: Lawmakers to re-examine Tennessee's juvenile sentencing laws

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam's decision last week to grant clemency to 30-year-old Cyntoia Brown has prompted renewed scrutiny of the state's uncommonly long sentences for juveniles convicted of first-degree murder.

Brown was 16 when she was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of a Nashville real estate agent, a stranger who had picked her up at an east Nashville Sonic then took her to his home, where she shot him in the back of the head.

Without Haslam's intervention, Brown faced a mandatory 51 years in prison before the chance for parole. Instead, she is set for release Aug. 7.
