Harrisburg, PA – 13 clemency applicants sentenced to life in prison will soon be freed to a Community Corrections Center and eventually paroled because Governor Tom Wolf signed their commutations yesterday. Each of the 13 was recommended by Pennsylvania Board of Pardons, led by Lt. Gov. John Fetterman. The Board sends the recommendations to Gov. Wolf, who reviews each one and signs after he has completed his thorough review.

“These 13 individuals have served time for their crimes and deserve now a second chance,” Gov. Wolf said. “They now have a chance to begin a life outside of prison that I hope is fulfilling for each of them.”
