In 2008, Fate Winslow — who was recently homeless at the time — was arrested for selling marijuana to an undercover police officer in Shreveport, Louisiana. The $20 sale landed Winslow a life sentence, according to the Innocence Project New Orleans, who represented Winslow. On Wednesday, he walked free after his case was resentenced for 12 years, with credit for time already served. “He received an obscenely excessive sentence given his life circumstances and crime, and today, we are correcting that unconstitutional, inhumane sentence,” IPNO said.
