OKTIBBEHA COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - A man sentenced to 120 years in prison on drug charges will soon appear in court for another sentencing.
Felix Wynn will appear before Honorable Senior Circuit Court Judge Lee J. Howard in the Oktibbeha County Circuit Court.
Wynn's attorney, Roy A. Perkins, said Judge Howard convicted him in 2006 on two counts of selling cocaine as a habitual offender.
Judge Howard sentenced him to serve 120 years in prison and to pay a $2 million fine.
Wynn served almost 14 years of his prison sentence.
In January 2020, the Supreme Court authorized a motion to file a post conviction release.
Presiding Judge Howard set a special session court hearing for Wynn.
The court date is set for March 3.
Perkins said he's going to ask the judge to have discretion on Wynn's sentencing and to set aside the 120 year prison term and the fine.
Perkins said he's hopeful the judge will release Wynn on time served.
Perkins said Wynn is grateful for this opportunity.
