$15 in drugs sent him to prison for life, but Charleston man now has chance at freedom

"He was sent to prison for life a decade ago for selling $15 worth of crack cocaine, but a Charleston man was recently handed a shot at freedom.

Onrae Williams' punishment had upset his family and critics of “three-strikes” sentencing laws. Ineligible for parole, Williams had little hope of walking free again.

But an appeal changed that.


Williams had gone to trial and lost. He had turned down a plea deal that could have netted him 10 years behind bars.

But the S.C. Supreme Court ruled this week that no one had thoroughly explained to Williams before the trial that a conviction meant a definite lifetime sentence."
