OPA / DOJ Longer Time to Process Fewer Pardons

Today, we learn that, with the recent batch of 17 presidential pardons, the average length of time for President Obama's pardons to be processed has risen from 4.3 years to 4.6 years.

Obama has granted precious few pardons and commutations of sentence (39 and 1 of each, respectively), but it takes longer and longer for the clemency process to work. In the recent batch of pardons was one application that was filed 14.4 years ago!
