Obama Commutes Sentences 

President Obama today has commuted over 330 sentences for prisoners, bringing the total to over 1700 inmates. More than the last 13 President’s combined. Most of these sentences involved prisoners serving for drug offenses which the administration declares that it’s due to “outdated laws.”

They Clemency Project 2014 along with the Justice Department has been heavily involved helping inmates apply for Clemency since President Obama made it clear in 2014 that the Justice Department undertake efforts to maximize Clemency applications.
