"I’m not ever coming back here again ever," Danni Roberts told the detention officers. "I like y’all, OK? But I’m not ever coming back. Thank you. Thank you all."
Roberts was one of hundreds of inmates freed from Oklahoma prisons on Monday with commuted sentences for drug and property crimes that are now misdemeanors under state law.
It is the single largest such action in U.S. history. Gov. Kevin Stitt had granted commutations to 572 inmates, and 462 of them were released Monday.
