California: 72 Pardons, 7 Commutations

The  L.A. Times reports Governor Brown has continued "his tradition of considering the requests of felons for a second chance both at Christmas and Easter" by granting 72 pardons and 7 commutations of sentence. The Times notes "the bulk" of the grants were for "nonviolent drug crimes." One commutation of sentence will result in immediate release. The other six involve a "chance" to be released from prison by the State Board of Parole Hearings. See story here.
