3 Inmates Serving Time for Kansas Crimes Get Commutations

KSAL StaffDecember 20, 2016

Three federal inmates serving time in Kansas-related drug cases are getting their sentences shortened by President Barack Obama.
Those 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.

Under Obama’s action Monday, Demetri Alexander’s 15-year sentence received in 2007 for the Kansas City, Kansas, man’s cocaine and gun convictions will come to an end next April. So will Franklin Goodwin Jr.’s life term related to the Leavenworth, Kansas, man’s 2009 cocaine-trafficking conviction.

Obama also ordered that the life sentence Steven Speal of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, received in 1997 is serving on a Kansas drug and weapons charges expire in December 2018.
