Clinic clients await clemency decision

Three clients of the  Clinical Law Program at the WVU College of Law are waiting to hear if they will be granted clemency by President Barack Obama before he leaves office on January 20.

The president has granted clemency to more than 1,000 non-violent, low-level drug offenders, including three clients of the Clinical Law Program who were released earlier this year.

However, three remaining clients of the law clinic are still waiting review by the Office of the Pardon Attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice. The cases are being handled by student lawyers with faculty supervision.

Inmates Bryant Cook, Andre Scales, and Nathaniel Law meet the federal clemency criteria, according to  Valena Beety, associate professor of law.
