New Jersey: Sentence Commuted !

Gov. Chris Christie has commuted the seven-year prison sentence of 27-year old Brian Aitken to time served. Aitken was charged with "possession of a handgun and cop-killer bullets," but served only a few weeks of the sentence. The handguns were unloaded at the time of the arrest and in the trunk of his car. The commutation order is, however, "subject to a revocation of his release at any time at the discretion of the governor." See story here and here.

We also highly recommend Radley Balko's article on this case, here.
