AFP-OK State Director John Tidwell issued the following statement:

“Thanks to Governor Stitt and the Legislature’s leadership, Oklahoma is making great strides to surpass Texas in providing individuals with opportunities to acquire a second chance. Following the historic mass commutation the Sooner State saw last month and the reforms that were championed this legislative session, we’re thanking lawmakers for their efforts to allow for more second chances across the Sooner State and encouraging them to implement more reforms. As we look towards 2020’s legislative session, we urge lawmakers to consider more ways to improve our criminal justice system and allow for more second chances.”

Background:
