Department Of Corrections Denies Prisoners Release

Oxford, MS

The Mississipi Department of Corrections Commissioner Pelicia E. Hall has denied the early release of Daniel Cummings late Friday evening.

District Attorney Ben Creekmore said, “It is my understanding that MDOC has reconsidered their position on their decision to release Daniel Cummings and we will continue to monitor his status.”

A spokesperson for the MDOC said “The offender was being considered for release under Earned Release Supervision. He is no longer being considered for release.”

We are all elated to hear they have reconsidered this move. This would have been devastating to the Langley’s family if this release had taken place.
