Obama commutes 8 crack cocaine sentences
[link to www.usatoday.com]

President Obama is commuting the prison terms of eight people convicted on federal crack cocaine charges, saying they were punished under laws that permitted unfair sentencing disparities.

"In several cases, the sentencing judges expressed frustration that the law at the time did not allow them to issue punishments that more appropriately fit the crime," Obama said in a statement.

One of those commuted -- Reynolds Allen WintersmithJr. -- is a cousin of Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, a long-time political supporter of Obama.
