This is Report on Wisconsin' s past use of Clemency was put together using data submitted by WI Governors before the Prison Boom in 1989 shut down both parole and clemency possibilities. WE obtained the data from the Legislative reference Bureau and will post the original statistics below soon. Each governor was mandated by law to write an annual report on clemencies he had given. We thank Harlan Richards for his wonderful work in compiling the data, making it understandable, and writing the report.
This report has three sections
Introduction by Harlan Richards ( available through this link and pasted above)

4 Charts showing WI treatment over the years of Prisoners given life sentences.
