George Thomas Receives Reduced Sentence

UPDATE:
George Thomas will now serve two 25 year sentences consecutively on charges of second-degree murder rather than first-degree murder. Thomas gave testimony that lead to the criminal conviction of Eric Boyd last month in the 2007 murders of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom murders.

In exchange for his testimony, Thomas was said to receive time off of his sentence. Right now, Thomas is eligible parole in 2064.
