Prosecuting Attorney Ron Holliday explained that Harrison would have to serve a minimum of 85 percent of his sentence before he can be considered for parole because the offense is considered a "dangerous felony" in Missouri.
Holliday said Harrison was previously convicted of burglary and receiving stolen property in Nodaway County in 2014.
