Reducing Sentences with Commutation
Commutations are not pardons, but a form of clemency that can help reduce the overall time you need to spend in prison after a conviction. If you have served two years of your sentence, you may be eligible to obtain a commutation.
Some factors that are considered when determining eligibility for commutation include:
- The time that was spent serving the sentence
- The sentence that was given to the felon
- The behavior of the individual during their time of incarceration
Commutation will only be granted if the individual has served a minimum of two years of their sentence and has been on model behavior since their conviction. Common types of commutations include the removal of multiple sentences (such as the total number of years of the individual’s sentencing being more than the lifespan of the individual), the death penalty being reduced to a life sentence, and the possibility of parole being added to an individual’s sentencing.
