Two of the 95 persons granted commutation of sentences on December 18, 2015, by President Obama were clients represented by the CUA Innocence Project Clinic & Clemency Project. Professor J.P. "Sandy" Ogilvy contacted both, Sherman Chester and Kevin McDonald, by phone to inform them of their commutations.  

Professor Ogilvy said, "We still have three filed petitions outstanding and will be filing several more in the coming weeks. I am delighted for the clients and for the students of the Clinic who have done such good work."
