Commutation Support

What is commutation?

A commutation is a reduction in the incarceration term of a sentence. The Pardon and Parole Board may make a recommendation for commutation, but only the Governor may commute a sentence.


Who is eligible for commutation?

Any person in physical custody of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, who is not currently under probation or parole, is eligible to apply for commutation. A person may apply for commutation at any time, but after an unfavorable recommendation or denial you must wait three years from the date of the denial to reapply. It is recommended to be misconduct free for at least one year prior to filing a commutation.
