(AP) – Six federal inmates serving time in Missouri-related
drug cases are getting their sentences shortened by President Barack Obama, and
three others got pardons.
The commutations were among 153 announced Monday by the White House, along
with 78 pardons. That’s the largest number of individual clemencies in a single
day by any president.
Obama issued pardons to Bob Edward Bone of St. Louis and Larry Wayne Childress
of Williamsville in methamphetamine conspiracy cases, and Emmanuel Gabriel
Leeper of Plano, Texas, for a marijuana-possession conviction.
Commutations went to Tammie Twyone Francis of Lee’s Summit, Steven P. James of
St. Louis, Lamont Pollard of St. Louis, Kenneth Demon Terry of Ballwin, Vincent
Lee Twiggs II of Cape Girardeau, and Derwayne Williams of Independence. All are
serving time for cocaine-related offenses.
