Norris Greenhouse, Jr. has been released from the custody of the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections.

Greenhouse was released on June 28, 2019. He was sentenced to two years and six months for malfeasance in office, and five years for negligent homicide (to be served consecutively, for a total of seven years and six months) 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, according to Ken Pastorick, the communications director for the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections. Because by law these are not crimes of violence, he was required to serve 35 percent of this sentence (958 days).

In addition, while incarcerated, he received 300 days of Certified Treatment and Rehabilitation Program (CTRP) credit for completing prerelease, anger management, and college courses. His sentence began on October 4, 2017 (his sentencing date). He also received 25 days of credit for time serve, for time he spent in the parish jail awaiting trial and sentencing. Greenhouse is now on Goodtime Parole, Pastorick stated.

He is currently on community supervision with Probation and Parole, and completes his sentence on March 28, 2025.
