Far-left California Governor Gavin Newsom commuted sentences of 21 violent criminals including four murderers with life sentences without possibility of parole. He says he based his decision on the circumstances of the crime and the sentence imposed, the applicant’s conduct while in prison, and the offenders’ efforts toward rehabilitation. Newsom’s commutations can be rejected or upheld by the California Supreme Court. Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former prosecutor, Fox News commentator, and the ex-wife of Newsom, said that the Governor’s action created a threat to public safety, and was a slap in the face to victims, their families, and law enforcement who put them away. -GEG

Far-left California Governor Gavin Newsom commuted sentences of 21 violent criminals including 4 murderers with life sentences without possibility of parole.

 

One of the murderers was arrested in 1993 for fatally shooting a man during a carjacking and another was incarcerated in 1991 for killing an armed guard during a robbery.

A man who served 31 years of 2 life sentences for a double murder in 1988 was also given clemency by Newsom.

SacBee reported:

Gov. Gavin Newsom is commuting the sentences of 21 violent offenders incarcerated in California prisons, including four men who have convictions related to homicides in Sacramento County, the governor’s office announced Friday.

Jacoby Felix, Crystal Jones, Andrew Crater and Luis Alberto Velez were convicted of separate murders in the 1990s. All four, now granted commutations by Newsom, were convicted in Sacramento County and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The clemency action was announced Friday in a statement from the governor’s office, which describes the crimes committed by those four men and 17 other state prisoners, and explains the reasoning for commuting their sentences.

“The Governor carefully reviewed each application and considered a number of factors, including the circumstances of the crime and the sentence imposed, the applicant’s conduct while in prison and the applicant’s self-development efforts since the offense, including whether they have made use of available rehabilitative programs and addressed treatment needs,” a statement from Newsom’s office said.

Newsom’s commutations can be rejected or upheld by the California Supreme Court. Recall, the California Supreme Court rejected 10 clemency actions by the state’s former Gov. Jerry Brown.

Newsom’s ex-wife Kimberly Guilfoyle blasted him for releasing murderers with life sentences, calling his move a “threat to public safety.”
