New Clemency Rules

The Obama administration on April 23 announced new rules that will enable more federal prisoners serving sentences for non-violent crimes to apply for clemency. To be eligible, prisoners must not have a history of violence before or after their prison term and be serving a federal sentence that would probably be shorter if they were convicted today.
