Board will hear Cyntoia Brown’s request for clemency

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Cyntoia Brown, a woman who is serving a life sentence for killing a man when she was a 16-year-old prostitute, is going to make her case for clemency at a hearing in a Tennessee prison. The state’s Board of Parole will make a recommendation sometime after the hearing Wednesday. But the decision will ultimately be up to Gov. Bill Haslam.

Celebrities including Kim Kardashian and singer Rihanna have launched a social media campaign to free the now 30-year-old woman.
