A Sallisaw man, sentenced in 2000 to 41 years and three months in a federal prison, will be free on Oct. 6, 2018, President Barak Obama declared Thursday.
Chip J.W. Teague, 55, was one of 102 people whose sentences were commuted Thursday by the president.
Teague is serving that sentence for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, three counts of possession of a firearm moved in interstate commerce, two counts of possession of a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, two counts of manufacturing methamphetamines, and maintaining a place for the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Teague is serving the sentence at the El Reno Federal Correctional Institution after he was sentenced in the U.S. District Court in Muskogee.
His original release date was Aug. 13, 2035. The prison sentence was commuted to expire on Oct. 6, 2018, conditioned upon Teague’s enrollment in a residential drug treatment program.
