LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 55-year-old federal prison inmate from North Las Vegas is one of 58 people whose long sentences on drug-related offenses are being commuted by President Barack Obama.

The White House announced Thursday that Michael Tyree Mays’ sentence of 30 years on a charge of cocaine possession with intent to distribute will instead expire in May 2018.

Court records show that Mays was sentenced in 1999 in California as a repeat offender after pleading guilty to one count of a multiple-count indictment.

He filed documents challenging his sentence as improperly based on a 1993 conviction in another case.
