The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF) applauds Friday’s announcement of President Barack Obama granting commutations of sentences to 95 individuals and pardons to two individuals. With Friday’s commutations, President Obama has granted a total of 184 commutations during his time in office, the most of any president since the Johnson Administration and more than the last five presidents combined. Of Friday’s 95 commutees, an overwhelming majority of these individuals were incarcerated for drug offenses.
