49 Oklahoma inmates imprisoned for drug crimes asking for commutations

The 49 inmates and those backing their commutation applications are citing recent changes in state law — and Oklahoma’s highest incarceration rate in the nation — as the reason why.


“A lot of these are 20-, sometimes 30-year sentences on a crime that if charged now would be a misdemeanor,” said Corbin Brewster, Tulsa County’s chief public defender.

Project Commutation

Correcting Unjust Sentences In Oklahoma

#ProjectCommutation

UPDATE

On December 5th, 2018, Gov. Mary Fallin granted commutations to 21 applicants that reached her desk through a campaign led by Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform (OCJR). This action will lead to the immediate release of these 21 individuals — including Felicia, Kayla, and Juanita — who were serving excessive prison sentences for low-level offenses.
