    WASHINGTON — President Obama commuted the sentences of another 102 federal prison inmates Thursday, continuing his move to dramatically reduce the number of inmates in prison for drug crimes.

    "The vast majority of today’s grants were for individuals serving unduly harsh sentences for drug-related crimes under outdated sentencing laws,"White House counsel Neil Eggleston said in a statement. " With today’s grants, the President has commuted 774 sentences, more than the previous 11 presidents combined. With a total of 590 commutations this year, President Obama has now commuted the sentences of more individuals in one year than in any other single year in our nation’s history."

    Thursday's announcement follows a record-breaking month in August, when Obama commuted the sentences of 325 inmates.
