Montana Adopts New Policy for Clemency Law

The Montana Board of Pardons and Parole has adopted a new policy on how it will implement a new law that allows the governor to grant clemency to prisoners even if the board recommends against it.

Under the new policy, if there is no new information in the application for clemency the panel can rely on existing records and move the application along.  If the application is new, the board staff will have to review it and report to the panel.

Since the law took effect on October 1, they have received five requests for clemency.
