Justice Department Readies for Unprecedented Campaign to Grant Clemency to Nonviolent Offenders

The Obama administration is anticipating thousands of clemency requests from federal inmates imprisoned for drug offenses.

The Washington Post reports that the clemencies are part of an unprecedented campaign to create more equity in criminal sentencing by freeing some nonviolent offenders.

The initiative will last two years and will involve dozens of reassigned lawyers to the pardons office.

“The White House has indicated it wants to consider additional clemency applications, to restore a degree of justice, fairness and proportionality for deserving individuals who do not pose a threat to public safety,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Monday.

“The Justice Department is committed to recommending as many qualified applicants as possible for reduced sentences.”
