A new report from the Riverfront Times puts the disparity in stark contrast: While Missouri inmates on average spend less than four years in prison, some of the state’s nonviolent drug offenders are still serving decades-long, no-parole terms. In this segment, host Sarah Fenske talks with the RFT's Danny Wicentowski and Republican state Rep. Cheri Toalson Reisch. We also hear from two men who recently had their sentences commuted by Governor Mike Parson.
