Many prisoners have had their sentences commuted in the last few years. And there are literally thousands of applications pending at the Governor’s office right now. If your loved one has submitted one, you’ve probably wondered why it hasn’t been reviewed, considered, or even granted when others who applied after them were granted, and have even been paroled by now. First, understand that the actual clemency application (for commutation of sentence) is only a few pages, however, they should NOT fill in the blanks and submit it as is. To ensure that they have submitted the best application possible, it is necessary to prepare it like a BPH Portfolio for their initial suitability hearing. Nothing less will suffice. Remember, your loved one is pleading for mercy to have their lawful sentence reduced!
