Jeff Mizanskey to be released Sept. 1

A Missouri man sentenced to serve life in prison without parole for marijuana will soon be free.

Dan Viets, the attorney for Jeff Mizanskey, announced Thursday afternoon that his client is to be released from prison on Sept. 1.

Mizanskey has served more than 21 years for nonviolent marijuana offenses.

In May, Gov. Jay Nixon granted Mizanskey a commutation of his sentence.

A Missouri Board of Probation and Parole at the Jefferson City Corrections Center held his first hearing on Aug. 6.

Four days later, Mizanskey and his attorney were informed that he would released.

Mizanskey’s release from JCCC will take place between 8 and 10 a.m. that day.
