Man Serving Life For Marijuana Offense Released From Prison

Jefferson City, MO  (KTRS)  A Missouri man sentenced to life without parole for marijuana-related offenses is free.

Jeff Mizanskey was released Tuesday morning after spending over two decades in prison. Police say Mizanskey conspired to sell 6 pounds of pot to a dealer connected to Mexican drug cartels.
He was sentenced and convicted as a persistent drug offender under Missouri law.

The law allowed life without parole for people with three felony drug convictions. It’s since been changed.

Missouri’s Democratic Governor Jay Nixon commuted Mizanskey’s sentence in May, making him eligible for parole.
