Continuing his tradition of giving pre-Christmas reprieves, Gov. Jerry Brown granted 112 pardons and commuted one sentence on Friday.
The pardons were granted mostly to individuals convicted of nonviolent, drug-related crimes who have since completed their sentences.
Since 2011, Brown has granted 854 pardons and two commutations, according to the governor's office. That far exceeds recent predecessors such as former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who granted 15 pardons; Gov. Gray Davis, who granted zero pardons; and Gov. Pete Wilson, who granted 13.
