Justice Department Hunting for Worthy Inmates Who Would Qualify for Clemency

The Justice Department is searching prisoners who may qualify for clemency.

NPR reports that Deputy Attorney General James Cole met Tuesday with defense attorneys and interest groups to help identify inmates with clean records, long sentences for low-level crimes and no significant history with gangs or violence.

The speech is a strong indication that President Obama plans to use his powers to shorten prison sentences for some worthy prisoners.

Defense attorneys said they are excited to help.

“We look forward to working together with them and others to help identify potential commutation cases and ensure prisoners have trained pro bono counsel to submit focused petitions for the meaningful consideration the Deputy Attorney General has pledged they will receive,” said Mary Price of Families Against Mandatory Minimums.
