Missouri Governor Mike Parson is giving a pardon to 24 people and is commuting four other sentences.

The Governor’s office released a statement yesterday (Monday) saying each of the offenders have shown a changed lifestyle.

The names of the individuals will not be immediately released however legal paperwork has been filed in each case.

Parson said in the release the 4 sentences that were commuted were for drug offenders and that each offender will serve out the rest of their prison time in house arrest.
