Despite Dimetrious Woods Release from Prison, Missouri AG Fights to Keep the Former Drug Offenders Locked Up

“Woods — who fully admits his crime — was sentenced in 2007 to 25 years in prison with no possibility of parole. But in 2014,
state lawmakers passed a wide-ranging rewrite of the criminal code that was intended, in part, to reduce disparate sentences.” ~ Tony Messenger

Despite Inmate’s Victory, Missouri AG Fights to Keep Drug Offenders Locked Up

On January 1, 2017, a sweeping reform of Missouri’s criminal statutes eliminated one the harshest punishments meted out to repeat drug offenders — a special provision that barred the possibility of parole.

Enacted in 1989, the provision had the effect of keeping certain drug offenders in prison far longer than other serious felonies. Parole allows the vast majority of convicted criminals— even murderers and rapists — to appear before a parole board, generally after serving around 25 percent of their sentence. The drug offenders were denied that opportunity.

In 2014, the state legislature approved numerous revisions to Missouri’s criminal codes, among them those statutes defining the punishment for drug offenses.”No parole” was erased from the books.
