CCWP is so happy to share the news that on December 24, 2018 Governor Brown granted 73 more commutations for people with Life Without Parole (LWOP) sentences. 13 of these are for people in women’s prisons most of whom CCWP has supported with their commutation process. 60 are for people in men’s prisons. Brown also granted 58 commutations for people with other sentences and 143 pardons. Copies of the gubernatorial commutations and pardons can be found at:
Through his unprecedented number of LWOP commutations Brown is recognizing the injustice of LWOP and other forms of extreme sentencing. Thank you to all who have supported the DROP LWOP campaign in so many ways!
