Gov Brown Grants Executive Clemency


CCWP is thrilled to share the news that today Governor Brown granted 70 more commutations and 38 pardons.  Among the 70 commutations of lengthy sentences, there are 32 for people with Life Without Parole (LWOP) sentences, 8 of them for people in women’s prisons.   Copies of the gubernatorial pardons and commutations can be found here. Through this unprecedented number of commutations Brown is recognizing the injustice of LWOP and other forms of extreme sentencing.  Thank you to all who have supported the DROP LWOP campaign.  Together we will continue to demand commutations for all 5,000+ people with LWOP sentences and the end to LWOP and all forms of extreme sentencing.
