Two Wisconsin drug offenders have had their sentences reduced by President Barack Obama. Brian Altman of New Berlin and Duane Clasen of Evansville were among 111 federal prisoners who had their sentences commuted by the president on Tuesday.
That brings the total to 325 for this month and 673 for Obama’s eight years in office — more than the last ten presidents combined.
Altman had a 40 year term reduced to 15 years — and he has about six more years to serve for selling methamphetamines and using a gun in a drug trafficking crime in Virginia. Clasen will be freed next August after he got a 20 year term in 2003 for distributing meth and violating terms of a supervised release in Iowa.
