President Obama Commutes Federal Sentences For 102 More Inmates

posted on October 11, 2016

One hundred more federal prison inmates had their sentences commuted by President Obama Thursday. This latest round of commutations makes for a total of 774, more than the previous 11 presidents combined. White House counsel Neil Eggleston said in a statement that the majority of inmates who were granted clemency were in prison for “drug-related crimes under outdated sentencing laws,” and are for people “who have demonstrated that they are deserving of a second chance at freedom.”

However, in contradiction with his public crime control and anti-gun agenda, 15 of these inmates were convicted for gun-related crimes—either possessing a gun illegally as a convicted felon or using a weapon during a drug transaction. Another eight individuals were convicted of trafficking in more than five kilos of cocaine, and a ninth person was convicted of trafficking 1,000 kilograms or more of marijuana.
