Florida: Commutation of Sentence

In 1999, Jeffrey Sakemiller was convicted of vehicular homicide, D-U-I, driving with a suspended license, and culpable negligence. He was then sentenced 14-years in prison. It did not help that he also had 4-previous D-U-I convictions. Now, the State Clemency Board has decided he has served long enough. Incidentally, the fatality in the accident was his own 6-year old daughter. See story here.
