JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves says he’s not currently thinking about pardoning a woman who is serving a life sentence after she was caught with marijuana and sentenced as a habitual offender.
Tameka Drummer, now 46, received a life sentence in 2008 after she was pulled over for an expired license plate in northern Mississippi’s Alcorn County and officers found a small amount of marijuana in her car.
Drummer was sentenced as a habitual offender because of previous convictions. Responding to questions Monday, Reeves said he didn’t have details about Drummer’s prior convictions.
He said he’s not considering any pardons now.
