DAILYKENN.com -- A police officer who was convicted of malfeasance in office and negligent homicide was released after serving only 21 months of a seven-year sentence. Norris Greenhouse Jr was released from prison as of July 3, 2019.

Greenhouse was one of two police officers involved in the fatal shooting of a six-year-old autistic boy. The crime occurred during a traffic stop in 2015. The victim was the unarmed Jeremy Mardis. The boy's dad was driving the vehicle pulled over by police. He was also shot.

18 rounds of ammunition were fired into the vehicle driven by the boy's dad, wounding his father and killing six-year-old Jeremy Mardis. The boy lived about seven minutes after being shot, according to coroner reports.

According to kalb.com, "Greenhouse, Jr. was one of two deputy Ward 2 city marshals charged in connection with the crime, the other being Derrick Stafford, who is serving a 40 year sentence for manslaughter and attempted manslaughter."

Stafford was sentenced to forty years in prison, half of which would be served "without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence," according to wikipedia.com.

The crime occurred in Marksville, Louisiana, reports say.

According to wikipedia ▼ On November 3, 2015, Jeremy Mardis, a six-year-old boy, was killed in Marksville, Louisiana, in a police shooting that also wounded his father Chris Few. Two Marksville law enforcement officers, Derrick Stafford and Norris Greenhouse Jr., were arrested on charges of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder as a result of the incident. The evidence from a police body-worn video camera was cited as being contributory to the speed of the arrests. On the night of November 3, 2015, officers Derrick Stafford and Norris Greenhouse of the Marksville Marshal's Office attempted to stop a vehicle driven by Christopher Few. He had his son Jeremy Mardis with him in the front seat. After he and his fiancée Megan Dixon had an argument at a bar that evening, they had driven away in separate vehicles. She said that she saw him pass her, followed by a marked police car with two officers. After Greenhouse and Stafford activated the patrol car lights Few failed to pull over, resulting in a two-mile car chase. At some point Greenhouse and Stafford called for backup, and two other officers responded. They ended the chase on a dead-end street by the entrance to the Marksville State Historic Site at the corner of Martin Luther King Drive and Taensas Street. One of the responding officers used his body camera to record the confrontation. Greenhouse and Stafford allegedly fired eighteen rounds of ammunition into Few's vehicle at approximately 9:30 p.m. Few was struck twice, in the head and chest, despite having his hands in the air, according to police body-camera footage. Mardis was hit by five bullets, also struck in the head and chest. He was initially thought to have died instantly, according to the coroner for Avoyelles Parish. However, it is now known that six-year-old Mardis was alive for an additional seven minutes while lying in his father's truck.

From kalb.com ▼ Norris Greenhouse, Jr. has completed a portion of his sentence and has been released from the custody of the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections as of June 28 [2019], according to Ken Pastorick, the communications director for the department. Greenhouse, Jr. was sentenced to seven years and six months after pleading guilty in October 2017 to malfeasance in office and negligent homicide. He received two years and six months on the malfeasance conviction and five years for negligent homicide for his role in the November 2015 shooting death of 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis and the shooting of his father, Chris Few, in Marksville. Greenhouse, Jr. was one of two deputy Ward 2 city marshals charged in connection with the crime, the other being Derrick Stafford, who is serving a 40 year sentence for manslaughter and attempted manslaughter.
Greenhouse, Jr. is now on what is called "Good Time Parole." He is currently on community supervision with Probation and Parole and will complete the totality of his sentence on March 28, 2025.
