Mother of Broncos’ Demaryius Thomas To Be Released From Prison Early
The mother of Denver Broncos' wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is being released from prison early after President Barack Obama commuted the sentences of 46 imprisoned drug offenders.
According to the Denver Post, 42 year-old Katina Stuckey Smith, of Montrose, Georgia will be released from prison on November 10th, after serving some 15 years in prison for drug trafficking. She had been scheduled for release in 2017.
Meanwhile, Thomas' grand mother continues to serve two life sentences for running a cocaine operation from their home in Georgia.
The President commuted the sentences of 46 offenders who's punishment, he said, didn't fit their crime. The sentence reduction is the result of changes last year to the U.S. Sentencing Commission guidelines for drug offenders.
With a release date of November 10th, Thomas's mother will have a chance to see her son play professional football in person for the first time when the Broncos host Kansas City on November 15th.
