Seeking candidates: Are you impacted by lack of commutations of sentences in Wisconsin?
In effort to raise awareness of the lack of commutations of sentences in the state of Wisconsin, WISDOM is seeking a case to lift up to the attention of the public and the Governor’s office. It is our hope that bringing to light a specific individual will help urge Governor Evers to establish a Commutations Committee to begin to review cases of disproportionate sentencing.
