Iowan gets pardon from the President

DES MOINES (KWWL) - President Bush has commuted the life sentence of an Iowan who was convicted more than a decade ago on methamphetamine charges.

On Tuesday, Bush commuted the sentence of Reed Raymond Prior of Des Moines.

Prior was convicted of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

He was sentenced in 1996 in the Southern District of Iowa to life in prison with 10 years of supervised release.

His prison sentence is now set to expire on Feb. 23, 2009, but the terms of the commutation leave intact and in effect the 10 years of supervised release with all its conditions.
