The state Post-Release Supervision and Parole Commission said in August 2020 that Larry M. Demery would be released following participating in a scholastic and vocational program to prepare him for life outside jail.

Demery, 46, was initially scheduled to be released in August 2023 but saw that date pushed back a year.
