Only when Anderson’s original prison sentence was supposed to have ended, eight U.S. marshals arrived to his home and took him in Southeast Correctional Center. During the ten years passed without serving the sentence Anderson had a normal life rich in events: he started his own construction-related business, got married, divorced, married again, had three children and became father to a stepchild. At 37 years, as a father of his family, being sent in prison was a fact which has troubled his life. In February, Anderson’s lawyers had filed an appeal calling his imprisonment unfair and unjust. Fortunately for the Missouri man, A Judge of Missouri’s 33rd Judicial Circuit Court in Charleston decided Monday to release him. He said motivating his decision:”You’ve been a good father. You’ve been a good husband. You’ve been a good taxpaying citizen of the state of Missouri. That leads me to believe that you are a good man and a changed man.” Anderson returned to his family.
