Default Anyone's loved one granted a commutation in Michigan state prison system?

Has anyones loved one been granted a commutation in the Michigan state prison system? If so How long did it take once they were approved to actually be released? My husband put in for one and I am on pins and needles waiting to find out if his application has merit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I wish you both the best of luck. I've never heard of anyone succeeding in getting one granted. But I'm sure there are some and your husband could be one.

I have a friend who is working on one for her brother right now. It is a LOT of work. He has been in already for 35 years. There is a specific protocol to follow, WAY more then a simple application. She also hired a lawyer whose specialty is this. From what I understand, very few are ever granted. Research research research.

my husband did all his paperwork in prison,,,my mom,sister and myself have all wrote support letters, and he got alot of support letters from the co's and counselor. I am praying we hear something back soon. Financially out here by myself is starting to take a toll on me. With the Governor nearing the end of his term, I heard right now is the best time to get one sent in. My husband minimum sentence is 10 1/2 years, he is already served close to 7 1/2 years.
