Denver Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas is a six year veteran in the NFL. But this week could his first chance to play as a pro in from of this mother. Thomas’ mother, Katina Stuckey Smith, has never been able to attend one of his games. That may soon change as the Federal Bureau of Prisons listed her as having been released on Tuesday.
In 2000, Smith was convicted in the Middle District of Georgia on one count of conspiracy to possess cocaine with the intent to distribute. Smith was one of 46 nonviolent drug offenders whose sentences were commuted by President Barack Obama in mid-July. Her release date was to be June 25, 2017. Prison records showed that she was recently housed at the Tallahassee Federal Correctional Institution in Tallahassee, Fla.
The Denver Post has reported that Smith has been living in a halfway house for the past three months. According to the Post, Smith will be on supervised release and have to report to U.S. probation, which could be by phone or in person. Travel restrictions will be at the discretion of the court and her probation officer.
The Broncos next game is this week against the Kansas City Chiefs and could be her first time to see him play as a pro.
