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.

PREVIOUS:

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