As President Obama wraps up his time in the White House, he's shortening the time hundreds of Americans have to spend in the big house.
On Thursday, Obama commuted sentences of another 102 inmates, most of whom were incarcerated for nonviolent drug offenses. He's now given clemency to 774 felons. Almost 600 of those instances came in the past year.
