Governor Brown Grants Commutations


8-18-2017

SACRAMENTO Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced that he has granted nine commutations.

Inmates currently serving a sentence for a conviction by the California Courts can petition to have their sentence reduced by applying for a commutation. In the majority of these commutations, these individuals have been granted the opportunity to make their case before the Board of Parole Hearings, which will determine whether they are ready to be released from prison.

Copies of the nine commutations can be found here. Additional information on commutations can be found here.
