Missouri Man Serving Life In Prison For Marijuana Is Granted Parole

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

free jeff mizanskeyJeff Mizanskey has been serving a life sentence in prison for marijuana-only offenses for over two decades now. I am very happy to report that it was announced today that Jeff Mizanskey has been granted parole, and will finally be released from prison to return to his family. The granting of parole comes after a very long public awareness campaign ran by Jeff Mizanskey’s family and the Show-Me Cannabis campaign. Below is more about today’s announcement, via ABC News:

The only man in Missouri serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for non-violent marijuana related offenses is now getting released from prison.

Jeff Mizanskey’s son tells ABC 17 News his father will soon get freed from the maximum security prison in Jefferson City. Mizanskey has already served more than 20 years in the prison for repeat marijuana offenses.

In May, Governor Jay Nixon commuted Mizanskey’s sentence. The Governor’s decision allowed for a parole hearing. Mizanskey’s parole hearing was held on August 6th.

After the August 6th parole hearing, it was estimated that the decision to deny or grant parole would take as long as 6-8 weeks. The fact that it only took four days to render a decision is a testament to just how unfair Jeff Mizanskey’s sentence was in my opinion. No one should have to serve even one day in a prison cell for marijuana, let alone over two decades. I am happy for Jeff, his family, and friends, and can’t wait to read about what he plans on doing once he is free. I want to extend an enormous kudos to the Show-Me Cannabis campaign for doing such an amazing job working with the Mizanskey family to wage the public awareness campaign! Jeff will finally be free!



Drug Squad Probe Leads 560 Convictions To Be Overturned

Category: News | Posted on Mon, August, 10th 2015 by THCFinder

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A Philadelphia judge has reversed 158 more narcotics convictions amid a long-running probe of seven narcotics officers, even though the officers were mostly acquitted of corruption charges.

Public defender Bradley Bridge says that about 560 convictions have now been reversed.

Bridge tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that fewer than half of the squad's convictions have been reviewed.

Federal prosecutors accused the veteran officers of stealing large sums of drugs and cash from suspects and lying in court afterward.

Officer Jeffrey Walker is serving a three-year prison term after pleading guilty and testifying against his former squad members at trial this year.

However, a jury acquitted the other six. They have gotten their jobs back.
