NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Six people from Tennessee and Kentucky are among the 61 prisoners who had their sentences commuted by President Barack Obama.
All six whose sentences were commuted Wednesday were drug dealers who were sentenced to serve anywhere from 16 years to life in prison. Four are scheduled to be released on July 28.
Robert Anthony Anderson of Louisville was serving a life sentence for his involvement in a cocaine distribution ring.
