Brown has spent the last 15 years - almost half her life - in prison.
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that mandatory life sentences without parole for juvenile offenders are not constitutional, but Tennessee prosecutors successfully argued that Brown would technically become eligible for parole after 51 years, in 2055. "Per the commutation, Brown has now been released to parole supervision".
Cyntoia Brown, 31, whose murder conviction at 16 years of age galvanized A-list celebrities to campaign for criminal justice reform, was freed from prison after Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam granted her clemency here earlier this year.
Brown said in a statement this week that she looks "forward to using my experiences to help other women and girls suffering abuse and exploitation".
When she got back to Allen's house, Brown told authorities she saw a gun in a cabinet.
In addition to her book, a documentary about her is set to be released this year, the nonprofit documentary film group Odyssey Impact and Daniel H. Birman Productions Inc. said in a news release earlier this year.

Arsenal Take A Decision On Iwobi Following Everton’s ₦13.2 Billion Bid
Personally, I believe that a £30 million deal for Iwobi would be a great deal for the Gunners. Meanwhile, Everton also saw a loan bid for United defender Chris Smalling turned down today.
"While first giving honor to God who made all of this possible, I would also like to thank my many supporters who have spoken on my behalf and prayed for me", Brown said in a statement, viaABC.
She never testified during her trial, but during her appeals process, Brown, who had been a teenage runaway, took the stand and described how at the time of the killing, she was ensnared in an abusive relationship with a drug dealer known as Cut Throat who forced her into prostitution. Police said she shot Allen in the back of the head at close range with a gun she brought to rob him after he picked her up at a drive-in restaurant in Nashville to have sex with her.
Brown's story also inspired a documentary in 2011 called "Me Facing Life: Cyntoia's Story", about her life behind bars.
Her attorneys said she's requesting privacy and transition time before she makes herself available to the public.
The prosecution argued, however, that Brown had meant to rob Allen because she took his wallet after the murder.
While in prison, Brown earned an associate's degree in 2015 and a bachelor's degree in May.
