MDOC releases convicted killers on "earned release"

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Mississippi Department of Corrections is releasing convicted Jones County killers like Jason Creel free on "earned release."

MDOC's decision has caused anger among local lawmakers and Jones County prosecutors like Assistant District Attorney, J. Ronald Parrish. Parrish says, "It's Merry Christmas to the folks of Jones County from the idiots at MDOC.

They've set another killer on the loose. It's like they're spitting on Jones County and the state of Mississippi." Creel isn't the only convicted killer who's been set free on "earned release."
