Common Sense For Oregon Sues Governor Over Release Of Felons

(Salem, OR) -- Governor Kate Brown is facing a lawsuit over her early release of convicted felons. The lawsuit was filed by the group Common Sense for Oregon, which includes two district attorneys and four crime victims who are directly affected by the Governor's clemency decisions. The lawsuit claims the Governor's actions violate the state's clemency law. The Governor has given clemency to some convicts, because of a change the Legislature made in sentencing for juveniles which isn't retroactive.
