OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Broken Bow man is among dozens of federal prisoners whose sentences have been commuted by the Obama administration.

The White House announced commutations for 58 federal convicts on Thursday, including Christopher Dale Masters.

Masters is serving more than 19 years in prison for maintaining a place for manufacturing, distributing and using methamphetamine.

He was initially sentenced to 20 years in 2005, but a judge reduced the sentence by five months in February.

The White House says Masters’ prison term will expire on Sept. 2.

Masters lost an appeal in 2006 to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
