What Will Happen to the Clemency Movement in the Trump Administration?

By Christopher Zoukis Rather than slackening off as the Obama administration nears its final days, the clemency initiative announced in April 2014 for federal is picking up speed. From the Oct. 1 start of the current fiscal year until two days before Election Day, the president had issued 272 sentence commutations — nearly one-third of its total up to that time. On election eve, the sentences of 72 inmates were commuted, followed by 79 more Nov. 22, bringing the total for the Obama administration to 1,023, exceeding the combined total for commutations issued by all 11 presidents from Harry Truman…

‘Merrily We Roll Along’ LA Theater Review: Stephen Sondheim Still Stuck in Reverse

Stephen Sondheim’s 1981 musical “Merrily We Roll Along” has become as notorious — and beloved in some circles — as one of Shakespeare’s problem plays. The first Broadway production closed after just 16 performances, a high-profile flop that’s chronicled in the brilliant new documentary “Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened” by original cast member Lonny Price. A new Los Angeles revival by young director Michael Arden, which had a delayed press opening on Saturday night at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, is brilliantly sung by a talented cast of 20 led by Broadway veterans Aaron…

Are Innocent Prisoners' Paths To Justice Distorted?

Donald Trump is now officially our new president-elect. Leading up to this election, Hillary Clinton and Trump spoke here and there about prison reform. But not once did the issue of wrongful convictions become a topic. That’s strange given that, for the last two years, we have witnessed record numbers of innocent prisoners being exonerated–137 in 2014 and 149 in 2015. Were the candidates really less interested in repairing our failing criminal justice system than in emails and videotapes? Back to the topic at hand, there are many ways innocent people wind up being falsely convicted. This serious problem is…
