Default Charleston man sentenced to life in prison for nonviolent drug offense

Charleston man sentenced to life in prison for nonviolent drug offense is set free

"A Charleston man who had been sentenced to spend the rest of his life behind bars after being convicted of a nonviolent drug offense in 2007 is now a free man.

Weeks after an appeal overturned his original punishment that drew attention nationwide from critics of "three-strikes" laws, Onrae Williams, 36, was released Monday night after nearly 12 years of incarceration. Charleston attorney Mark Peper had argued during plea negotiations for a 15-year sentence with credit for time served, which translated into his client's immediate release."
